The deal is for 25 V80 2MW turbines to be supplied to the Alatan development near Tongliao in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The project is expected to come online in the third quarter.

Inner Mongolia is one of the boom areas in terms of Chinese wind development. However, the growth of new wind farms is also being stymied by grid capacity problems.

Much of the grid capacity is occupied by other energy types, which has led to wind farms being built but then marooned, unconnected and starved of space on the network.

Under new Chinese government plans, each regional grid in China will be given a quota, which will set out how much of its power feed-in must come from wind.
