Datang Chifeng Saihanba Wind Power Company, a subsidiary of state-owned utility China Datang Corporation (CDC), has placed two orders with Vestas, each for 25, 2 MW units. The combined capacity of 100 MW is all destined for projects in North China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. CDC declines to specify the projects involved but says it is engaged in developing a number of 50 MW wind farms around Chifeng, a small city in Inner Mongolia. The orders are for supply of complete turbines, including towers, as well as commissioning, and a two year maintenance and service agreement. Delivery of the units from Vestas' factory in Tianjin will begin in the second half of 2007. Datang is a leading wind power operator in China and a long term customer of Vestas, says the turbine supplier's Thorbjørn N Rasmussen.
