Ming Yang will co-develop this Yandun No. 6 Wind Power Farm with Xinjiang Huaran Oriental New Energy Co. Ltd, a leading China-based independent power producer.
Comprising one tenth of the total 2,000 MW capacity available in the Xinjiang Hami wind power projects, Ming Yang’s winning bid is equivalent to 67 wind turbines of 3.0MW Super Compact Drive ("SCD") WTGs with an awarded total contract value of approximately RMB 824 million.
The bid was launched in October 2010 and believed to be China’s first onshore wind turbines auction for 2.5 MW and above capacity wind turbines. Ten wind farm projects in total are expected, with four wind farms in Kushui town and six in Yandun town.
Mr. Chuanwei Zhang, Chairman and CEO of Ming Yang, commented: "This is a great result for Ming Yang and an endorsement of our SCD technology and the cost efficiencies it brings. By winning 200MW of capacity, we have now secured 118 units of SCD wind turbines. 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."
As previously announced, Ming Yang was verbally informed by the bidding committee in November that Ming Yang had successfully won its bid. China Machinery & Equipment International Tendering Co. Ltd. has now officially notified Ming Yang that the Company was awarded the Yandun project.
