Chinese wind energy equipment to enter Swedish market

Wind turbines produced by China’s Dongfang Electric Corporation Limited will soon be used in a wind power plant in Sweden, the company authorities said Friday.

According to the contract between Dongfang and the Swedish company Skelleftea Kraft AB, the Chinese company will install turbines in the third phase of Blaken wind power plant.

It is the first time China’s wind energy technology has been exported to the Swedish market.

Dongfang Electric Corporation Limited, with headquarters in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, is a leading power equipment manufacturer and service provider.

The Blaken wind power plant, with 100 turbines and total installed capacity of 250MW, will be one of Europe’s biggest wind power plants upon completion.
