GE Renewable Energy has announced an agreement with HECIC to supply 81 wind turbines for projects in the Fengning County of China’s Hebei Province.
The order comprises 54 units of GE’s 2.75-120 turbines and another 27 units of 1.85-82.5 turbines, to be installed at the Senjitu III & Qiansongba wind projects, respectively.
The turbines installed at the Senjitu III wind farm will include blades manufactured by LM Wind Power, which was recently acquired by GE.
Together, these projects aim at providing an additional 199.5 MW of power for the region, says GE. The deal also includes GE’s Digital Wind Farm solutions and a two-year warranty. The wind turbines will provide enough clean energy to power the equivalent of 800,000 homes in China, the company notes.
The Qiansongba & Senjitu III projects are strategically located near Beijing, which is currently facing a clean energy shortage and has committed to replacing coal-fired power with cleaner energy sources, says GE.
Pete McCabe, president and CEO of GE’s onshore wind business, says, “This is a significant step forward for both GE and HECIC in China, and this deal will help to expand HECIC’s renewable energy presence in China. Together, we will now be delivering more than 1 GW of wind power in country. We are committed to continue our investment in technology that will bring high-quality, reliable power to the region for many years to come.”
