GE wind power supplier to China

General Electric (GE) has been chosen to supply 55 of their 2.75-120 turbines for a wind power project located in Yunnan province in southern China.
The company has already supplied over 1.2GW of wind energy to the country, but is still lagging behind Gamesa and Vesta with 3.5GW 4.5GW respectively. The Huaneng Dali Longquan wind project will mark GE’s largest order in China to date. The contract also includes a two-year service agreement which includes operations and maintenance.
President and CEO of GE’s renewable energy business, Anne McEntee, said, ““China has huge potential for wind energy, and we are excited to help customers like Huaneng expand their renewable energy presence.”
“Our goal is to invest in the kind of renewable technology that will bring high-quality, reliable power to the region for many years to come, and the 2.75-120 is a great example of exactly that.”
President of Huaneng Renewables, Lin Gang, said, “We chose GE based on its proven reliability in other parts of the world, and the technology behind GE’s 2.75-120 wind turbine is well-suited for our local land constraints and the high-altitude project site.”
“We are excited to collaborate with GE to bring more renewable energy to China.”
According to Wikipedia: “It is estimated China has about 2,380 gigawatts (GW) of exploitable capacity on land and 200 GW on the sea. At the end of 2012, there were 76GW of electricity generating capacity installed in China, more than the total nameplate capacity of China’s nuclear power stations.”
The country is making efforts to reach its target of “non-fossil energy to account for 11.4% of the total energy consumption, and for CO2 discharge per unit of GDP to reduce by 17%” by the end of 2015.
