GE will supply 55 2.75-120 wind turbines to China's Huaneng Corp., for a planned wind project in the country's Yunnan province.
The 151 MW Huaneng Dali Longquan wind project is GE's largest wind order from China to date. The deal also includes a service agreement for two years of operations and maintenance, notes the turbine maker.
According to the Global Wind Energy Council, China added more than 16 GW of wind power in 2013, accounting for more than 45% of the world's total wind energy installations. The country aims to increase its installations to 150 GW of total wind capacity by the end of 2017 as a step toward a larger target of producing at least 15% of overall energy output from renewable sources by 2020.
