First commercial order in China for Repower North

Just over a year after it was established, Repower North (China) Co has won its first commercial order, putting all previous orders secured by its main shareholder, Repower Systems of Germany, firmly in the shade. Repower North is to deliver 150 MW from June next year to Shandong Province for three 50 MW plant being developed by Guohua Energy Investment Corporation in partnership with Roaring 40s (Windpower Monthly, June 2007), with an option for a further 150 MW to be delivered in 2009/10. "This contract is a milestone for Repower North," says the company's Fritz Vahrenholt. It will supply its 2 MW turbine for all projects. Repower North is based in Baotou, Inner Mongolia and is a three-way partnership led by Repower, which holds a 51% stake. The UK's Honiton Energy, a developer operating exclusively in China, and China's large state-owned North Heavy Industry Corporation hold the rest (Windpower Monthly, October 2006). Honiton plans to buy cold climate versions of the 2 MW machine from 2009 for 1200 MW planned in Inner Mongolia.
