Under the terms of the cooperation intention agreement, Ming Yang would provide 2.5/3.0MW SCD offshore wind turbines to the wind power project while the IPP would be responsible for wind farm development.
Pricing and other wind energy project development terms are expected to be based on the China 1GW Offshore Wind Farm Concession, which was announced in October 2010 and conducted under the direction of China’s National Energy Association.
As previously announced, Ming Yang was one of the few qualified wind turbine manufacturers selected to be partnered with prospective bidders in the offshore wind power concession. Subject to the signing of a definitive agreement, construction is expected to begin next year.
‘We believe this agreement demonstrates the value of our having been selected as a qualified turbine manufacturer in the 1GW Offshore Wind Farm Concession,’ commented Mr. Chuanwei Zhang, Chairman and CEO of Ming Yang. ‘This is a great opportunity for Ming Yang and a real endorsement of our SCD technology and the cost efficiencies it brings. We strongly believe that we are a technology leader in China’s wind power equipment industry and are well-positioned to capture a greater share of the wind power market in China.’
