GE Wind Energy is to supply ten of its 1.5MW wind turbines for the 15MW Huitengxile Wind Power Plant of Inner Mongolia in the People’s Republic of China.
The Huitengxile wind project will be located in Desheng Township in the central part of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, 120 kilometers east of Hohhot, the capital of Mongolia.
Power generated by the wind project will be purchased by Inner Mongolia Electric Power Corporation, the regional utility based in Hohhot, and will be distributed through the electricity grid system to consumers throughout Inner Mongolia.
The project is being developed by Inner Mongolia Longyuan Wind Power Development Company, a company fully owned by Inner Mongolia Electric Power and by the China Longyuan Electric Power Group (CLYPG) of Beijing, part of the China Guodian Group, one of the country’s five state-owned generating companies.
Groundbreaking is scheduled for October 2003 with the completion of construction estimated for August 2004.
China plans to bring 20 GW of new renewable energy capacity on-line by the year 2020.
