China's Guangdong to build nation's
largest off-shore wind farm
Mar 3, 2008 - Xinhua
South China's Guangdong Province plans to build
the nation's largest off-shore wind farm, in a bid
to quench its power thirst.
The facility, with a sea area coverage of 240
square kilometers, will be co-sponsored by the Lufeng
Municipal Government and Guangdong Baolihua New
Energy Stock Co., Ltd.
The plan includes a 1.25 million kilowatt wind
farm, an 8 million kw supercritical power plant
and a dock construction project.
The facility is expected to "relieve the energy
pressure and optimize the energy structure" in the
booming province, local government officials said.
China began to work on its second west-to-east
natural gas transmission pipeline last month. It
will mainly carry natural gas from the natural resources-rich
west to the southeastern Yangtze and southern Pearl
River deltas, the country's two most developed regions.
