Inner Mongolia/Wind Power IPP


Inner Mongolia Wind Power Project

China's first wind power project involving Japanese companies

Kyushu Electric participated in this project alongside the China Datang Corporation and the Sumitomo Corporation Group. With an operational period of 25 years, this is a project designed to supply electricity to a local transmission company under a long-term power purchase agreement.

Starting in 2004, the Kyushu Electric Group conducted surveys regarding the wind conditions within the area. As the surveys yielded good results, Kyushu Electric established a joint venture with the China Datang Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation Group, and commercial operations started in September 2009. This is the first Chinese wind project involving Japanese corporations.

The total generation of electricity is ~120GWh per year, and this project contributes to reducing CO2 emissions by 140,000 tons per year.
