GE 1215 MW Wind China

GE Renewable Energy has announced that it has secured 1215 MW in orders or commitments in the onshore wind sector in China for 2019. Combined, the turbines from these wind farms will power the equivalent of 850,000 homes in the country.

These orders and commitments include:

  • An order for 33 2.7-132 turbines for HECIC’s 100 MW Balagedai II Wind Farm in Inner Mongolia, scheduled for completion in 2020
  • An order for 286 2.5-132 turbines for Huaneng’s 715 MW Puyang Phase I and II wind farms in Henan, scheduled for completion in 2020
  • An order for 114 2.5-132 turbines for Shenzhen Energy Corporation’s 285 MW Yangzhou and Pizhou wind farms in Jiangsu, scheduled for completion in 2020
  • Public tender award for 46 2.5-132 turbines for Huaneng’s 115 MW Mianchi and Zhenping wind farms in Henan, scheduled for completion in 2020

Sheri Hickok, GE Renewable Energy’s CEO for Onshore Wind, Asia, said “we are delighted to have the opportunity to partner again with Huaneng and HECIC in China, and grow our relationships in this critical region.

“We are looking forward to working with SEC for the first time in China, and honored that they have selected us as their turbine provider in this highly competitive space. GE’s 2.5/2.7-132 turbine is ideal for China’s unique terrain, and with these wins, we are continuing to demonstrate our commitment to this important region.”

These projects will use GE’s 2.5/2.7-132 turbines, which were designed specifically for the unique low-wind-speed needs of the China wind regime and manufactured by GE in China.

In November, we had reported that the firm had signed an agreement with the China Huaneng Group to build a 715 MW wind farm in Puyang, Henan Province, China. This record deal represents GE’s largest-ever wind order in Asia, as well as the single-largest onshore wind deal ever awarded to a non-Chinese wind turbine generator OEM in China.
