Mingyang Gets 306-MW Philippines Turbine Order

Chinese wind turbine maker Mingyang Smart Energy Group Limited has announced that it has secured a 306-MW order from Singaporean renewable energy company Vena Energy for two onshore wind projects in the Philippines. Mingyang said the 212.5-MW Talim and 93.75-MW Sembrano are the two onshore wind projects.

Mingyang also informed that the wind projects would be located in the Province of Rizal, the country’s largest onshore wind projects, and feature Chinese wind turbines for the first time.

The order includes the supply, transportation, installation and commissioning of 49 MySE 6.25-172 wind turbines of Mingyang as well as a long-term O&M service agreement for the two projects. Commissioning is planned for late 2024. Once installed, the projects will feature the most powerful wind turbines in the Philippines.

Mingyang said the Philippines has suffered from severe power shortages and high electricity costs due to long-term dependence on imported fossil fuels and growing energy demand. As a result, the Philippine government has increased its support for renewable energy to address these challenges. It aims to achieve a 50% share of renewable energy in its power structure by 2040, with wind power accounting for approximately 11.8 GW.

In January 2023, during his state visit to Beijing, Philippines, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. met with a Chinese company representative delegation and talked with Mingyang’s Chairman and CEO Zhang Chuanwei. President Marcos stated that the Philippines’ demand for new energy is growing, and he looks forward to leading Chinese companies working together with the Philippines to promote clean energy development in the Philippines.

With this contract, Mingyang said that it has officially entered the Philippine market and has reinforced its market position in the Asia Pacific region, leveraging its reliable wind energy solutions and strong local partnerships. Furthermore, in January itself, Mingyang moved beyond the 18-megawatt (MW) threshold for offshore wind turbines, announcing its latest MySE 18.X-28X model featuring 140-meter-long blades.
