Wind energy in Pakistan: Goldwind wind turbines for a 30 MW wind power plant

The Tapal wind farm is located at the province of Sindh. HydroChina, a subsidiary of China Power Construction Corporation, is constructing the project. It will be run by three local Pakistani companies.

The wind turbines will be customised to suit the local wind and climate conditions.

Shipments will be made at the end of the year. Installation work is scheduled for completion in the third quarter period of 2016.

This is the second deal Goldwind has been awarded in Pakistan. Earlier, in November 2014, Goldwind completed installation of 33 units of 1.5MW turbines for the Three Gorges First (TGF) wind farm in the country.

Statistics released by the Chinese Wind Energy Association show China has exported a total of 1.76GW of wind turbines to 28 countries in the world by the end of 2014.
