Chinese energy company Guangdong Development Power Investment (GDPI) is planning a 120 MW wind project, to be built in stages, in Huidong county, Guangdong, South China. Costing around CNY 1.2 billion in total, the first phase of the Dongshanhai plant will comprise 49.5 MW. The company hopes to use 1.5 MW turbines, with the first units installed later this year, although the turbine supplier is not yet known. GDPI expects the first phase to be completed by the end of 2008. Data collected by GDPI and analysed by the Guangdong Meteorological Bureau indicates up to 800 MW of wind capacity could potentially be installed in the Dongshanhai area.
