The project involves the installation and operation of a 48 MW greenfield wind power plant for carbon-neutral electricity generation in Shandong province of China.
32 units of wind turbines with a rated capacity of 1.5 MW each were installed at the project plant, which is connected to the Shandong Power Grid, a sub-grid of the independent regional grid of the North China Power Grid. Once the plant comes into full operation, there is approximately 104,800 MWh of net electricity produced for grid export per year.
All the wind turbine generators are erected across Daxindian Town, Liujiagou Town and Chaoshui Town, which lie in the southeast of Penglai City that is situated in the most northern part of the Shandong Peninsula.
