The Mishan project is a continuation of a number of successful projects that have outperformed CGN’s expectations in terms of productivity: The Hongji project (300 MW in six phases) and the Shangchuandao project (110 MW in three phases), both using Vestas’ V52-850 kW turbines, have delivered outstanding energy production.
Jens Tommerup, President of Vestas China, says
“We are very proud to have built this series of wind power plants with CGN, and to have delivered as promised. The project size and the fact that CGN continues to choose Vestas for complex, mountainous sites such as Mishan proves their confidence in our products and capabilities. What we have done, among other things, to deal with this is redesigning the towers so they can be divided into more sections which eases transportation.”
The Mishan phase IV order includes the supply of wind turbines, installation and commissioning, a Vestas Online® SCADA system and a two-year service & maintenance agreement. Delivery is scheduled to take place in the third quarter of 2012.
With the completion of the fourth phase of the Mishan project, CGN’s fleet of Vestas turbines will amount to more than 900 MW.
The official statistics on the 2011 Chinese wind energy market, recently released by the Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA), ranks Vestas as the fifth largest turbine manufacturer in China – well ahead of other international players.
