China will construct five wind power bases each with a power capacity of 10 million kilowatts in five regionsChina will construct five wind power
bases each with a power capacity of 10 million kilowatts in five
regions, including coastal areas of Jiangsu Province, in order to
improve wind power generation capacity, said President He Dexin of the
Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA).
He added that these
five regions include coastal and offshore areas of Jiangsu Province,
Hami Prefecture in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Jiuquan in
Gansu Province, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and coastal and
northern areas of Hebei Province. In accordance with their different
installed power capacity, power output of these five power bases will
Reporters learned that construction has already started
for the wind power base project in Jiuquan, Gansu. By 2015, the
installed power capacity of this wind power project will be equivalent
to the current power generating capacity of the Three Gorges Project.
