The 49.5MW TGF wind farm, located in southern Pakistan, was developed by the China Three Gorges Corporation, via a subsidiary company it set up in Pakistan.
Goldwind has been contracted to supply turbines and maintain the facility for two years. The Goldwind 1.5MW machine is modified to suit the high temperature climate conditions.
The TGF wind project is the first developed by a Chinese company in Pakistan. Construction work took 18 months. All the turbines were connected to the local grid by 12 November 2014.
The TGF wind farm, involving an investment of $130 million, is expected to generate 140GWh of electricity a year, with a 20-year lifespan. Pakistan is suffering from a shortage of electricity.
