GE Energy will locally assemble and supply its wind turbines for one of China’s largest wind projects to date. When completed in 2007, the Jiangsu Rudong Concession II Wind Project in Jiangsu Province will add 150MW of wind power capacity to China’s electricity grid.
Developed and owned by Jiangsu Longyuan Wind Power Company of Nantong, the project will comprise 100 GE 1.5MW wind turbines, with 67 of the units to be installed in 2006 and the remaining 33 in 2007. The wind turbines will be assembled in Shenyang, China. The Jiangsu Rudong Concession II Wind Project is an extension of a project launched in 2002 by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), and will be located on the Subei Plain near Nantong, in east-central China about 50km from the East China Sea. Other key participants in the project include China Long Yuan Electric Power Co. (CLYPG), the parent company of Jiangsu Longyuan Wind Power Company, and China GuoDian Group, the parent company of CLYPG. In addition to supplying the turbines for the Rudong project, GE Energy will provide technical service for installation, commissioning and training.
