CNR wins supply deals for 1.5MW turbine

CHINA: CNR Wind Turbine has signed a CNY 187 million ($29 million) deal to sell 1.5MW wind turbines to a wind farm in east China's Yantai city.

CNR Wind Turbine Co. Ltd. is the wind turbine manufacturing arm of China Northern Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry Group (CNR), a leading Chinese locomotive producer.

This is the first deal CNR has won since it entered the wind-turbine manufacturing business in September 2009.

The 1.5MW full power variable high-speed permanent magnetic synchronizing turbines, produced in the industrial zone in Jinan, the provincial capital city of Shandong, are jointly designed with Aerodyn from Germany.

CNR Wind Turbine said it has started to develop 3MW, 5MW and 6MW offshore wind turbines for offshore wind farms. It aims to produce and sell 100 turbines this year, and have an annual capacity of producing 1,500 turbines soon.

CNR Wind Turbine says it is negotiating with other wind farm developers and expects to sign deals to equip two to three wind farms before the end of this year.

Yantai has decided to develop 3GW onshore and offshore wind farms in the city. It will hand the projects to CNR Wind Turbine and Huaneng Renewables.

Huaneng Renewables, a leading Chinese wind farm developer, said it will use CNR turbines under same conditions.

Jia Shirui, chairman of CNR Wind Turbine, said his company’s objective is to develop the company into one of China's top-five wind-turbine manufacturers by 2015.
