Project Description

The project is a 49.5 MW grid connected wind farm consisting of 33 x 1.5 MW wind turbines.

The electricity generated by the wind farm is supplied to the North China Power Grid.  The grid, dominated by fossil fuel-fired power plants, has an emissions intensity of 0.9502 tCO2/ MWh.

Sustainability Beyond Carbon

The project helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollution, such as SO2 and dust, as well as helping reduce fossil fuel consumption.

The project has provided local people employment opportunities, helping improve their living conditions.

The project has helped improve the local power system’s infrastructure and promotes increased utilisation of renewable energy.

The vegetation in the area of the project is very sparse and there are no rare endangered species, so the project construction had little impact on the diversity of local fauna and flora.

On the basis of the geomorphology, natural environment and construction method, and with the aim of minimising any negative impacts, the project owner framed a series of measures to optimize the construction and to take measures to recover the vegetation.

Stakeholders were consulted and the local community provided positive comments on the proposed project.  They believed that there would contribute greatly to local economic and sustainable development.
