Fujian adds transformer stations for wind

In an effort to get wind power to consumers on schedule by the end of this month, southeast China's Fujian Province is adding transformer substations to the electricity grid serving the Sanshan and Gaoshan wind farms in Fuqing City. Construction of the two wind plant began in 2007 and turbine installation at Sanshan was expected to wrap up by the end of last month. Installation of wind turbines at the Gaoshan wind farm began in early March. Together the projects are using 34, 2 MW turbines supplied by Hara XEMC Wind Power, at a cost of CNY 743 million ($109 million). Hara XEMC is a joint venture with Japan's Harokosan, which has already installed its direct drive turbines in Finland (Windpower Monthly, November 2007).
