China has completed the first-stage of the Jiuquan wind power project, the country's largest wind power project. More than 3,500 turbines have been erected with an installed capacity of 5.16GW. At present, 1.15GW of turbines are generating electricity into the grid.

Construction on the second stage, with an installed capacity of 7.55GW has already began. Seven 750-kilovolt substations and a 1,780 kilometres long high voltage transmission line link the Jiuquan base to China's east-west grid through which wind power can reach China's energy-hungry east.The 20-billion yuan wind power base, located in the windy desert near Jiuquan City, Gansu Province, started construction in August 2009 and is expected to be completed in 2015.
