SPIC starts operations on a 3.1 GW onshore wind project in northern China

China’s State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) has commissioned a 3.1 GW onshore wind power project in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of northern China. The project will be able to generate more than 8.9 TWh/year of clean electricity and avoid the use of 2.8 Mt/year of coal allowing for a reduction of emissions estimated at about 7.5 MtCO2/year.

The project is composed of four wind parks: a 1.2 GW park in Ulanqab, a 1 GW park in Tongliao, a 500 MW park in Xilingol and a 400 MW park in Alxa. The project also includes six 220 kV stations and 1,166 km of circuit. 

In 2022, China’s installed capacity for renewables surpassed 1,100 GW (with 413 GW for hydro, 365 GW for wind and 393 GW for solar). The country plans to reach 1,200 MW of wind and solar capacity by 2030.
