China Guodian ships blades for 153-MW Ethiopian wind project

(SeeNews) - Oct 30, 2014 - State-owned power generation firm China Guodian Corp (CGC) said Wednesday it has successfully delivered the blades for the 102 turbines at the 153-MW Adama II wind project in Ethiopia.

The company’s wind turbine production arm Guodian United Power Technology Co Ltd was in charge of the delivery. It explained this order is in line with its “going out” strategy to expand overseas.

The Adama II wind park, financed by the Chinese government, is developed by HydroChina International Engineering. The turbines were supplied by Chinese construction machinery maker Sany Heavy Industry Co (SHA:600031).

The Adama I wind farm, with a capacity of 51 MW, was completed in 2012. Chinese wind turbine maker Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co (SHE:002202, HKG:2208) procured the turbines.

Beijing-based CGC develops, invests, builds, operates and manages power generation facilities and then sells their output. It is also active in the transportation segment, environmental protection, technological services and consultancy businesses.
