Danish turbine manufacturer Vestas has won orders from two of China's leading wind developers for a combined capacity of 145 MW. It will supply 50, 2 MW machines to Longyuan for its Pingtan wind farm in east China's Fujian province and 53, 850 kW units to Huaneng for its Nan'ao development in south China's Guangdong province. Longyuan is spending CNY 860 million ($109.28 million) on this 100 MW second phase of Pingtan to add to the existing 6 MW, with delivery and commissioning of the Vestas machines expected to be completed before the end of 2007. Huaneng is spending CNY 434 million ($55.15 million) on the 45.05 MW at Nan'ao wind farm, bringing it up to a total capacity of 55.85 MW. The first 12 units are due to be commissioned at the end of December with the rest installed by the end of next year. Both projects are outside the central government's program for granting concession contracts.
