The sales contract calls for the entire order of fifty turbines to complete delivery, installation and grid connection this year.
In accordance with agreements between both parties, GC China will assist Guoneng Fengshen in the overall development of its 200 MW wind farm in Taonan. Based on this agreement, Guoneng Fengshen has further pledged that the entire 200 MW wind farm would purchase and use wind turbines produced by GC China. As a result, should the project be completed and all orders met, the anticipated order of 200 units of 1.0MW 2-blade wind turbines is projected to result in sales to GC China in excess of US$146 million (1 billion RMB).
Guoneng Fengshen is a high-tech joint-stock enterprise specializing in wind energy investments as well as research and development of new energy technologies. The enterprise holds an agreement with the People’s Government of Taonan of Jilin Province for the development of 500 megawatts (‘MW’) of wind farms in Yongmao, Taonan.
Currently, 200 MW of the wind power project has been established under the auspices of the Jilin Provincial Government and 50 MW out of the aforementioned 200 MW has obtained construction approval from the Jilin Provincial Development and Reform Commission. An additional 50 MW has entered into the approvals process with the Jilin Provincial Gird Connection System.
