Suzlon secures 100 MW order in Inner Mongolia

Backed by a loan from the World Bank, the Inner Mongolia North Longyuan Wind Power Corp has ordered 100 MW of wind turbines from India's Suzlon Energy for a project 120 kilometres north-east of Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia. The project sponsor is a joint venture between China's North Union Power and China's top wind project developer, Longyuan Electric Power Group Corp. Shipment of the first 50 MW of 80 Suzlon 1.25 MW machines will occur in 2010, followed by another 50 MW in 2011. Temperatures at the site drop as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius in the winter, while the average year-round temperature is just below freezing. The site is close to Datang International's Zhuozi Wind Power Farm, in operation since 2007, where 32 Suzlon 1.25 MW turbines are already turning.
