From August 30 to September 1, 2018, the 6th China-Eurasia Expo was held in Urumqi, northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, under the theme of “The Belt and Road – Consultation, Contribution and Shared Benefits”. Goldwind shared its latest vision of wind power industry in China in the international fair.
Having attended the expo for six times, Wu Gang, Chairman of Goldwind, confirmed that China-Eurasia Expo had become an importation bridge linking Goldwind to Central Asian countries and countries along the Belt and Road.
Goldwind has actively expanded overseas and offshore wind energy markets, in response to the Belt and Road Initiative. Now it has become a well-known brand in global equipment manufacturing industry. Targeted at seven regions, it is present in twenty countries from six continents, producing almost half of global direct-drive wind turbines newly installed every year. Its power generation efficiency in overseas wind farms has hit a new high and the average availability of its turbines is as high as 98.96%.
During the three-day expo, Goldwind signed the cooperation agreement with South African independent power producer BioTherm Energy on Excelsior project, an IPP project awarded before. The construction of this 32.5-MW wind park will begin this October and 13 GW121-2.5 MW wind turbines from Goldwind will be installed. It is the first project that Goldwind has won in African market and is estimated to create 1,000+ jobs for South Africa and produce over 560 GWh of clean electricity every year, serving the energy transformation in Africa.
According to Mr. Wu, in recently years, Goldwind has actively adopted IoT, big data, cloud computing, and smart wind farm design to tap the potential of wind resource, boost turbine efficiency, increase power generation, improve renewable energy utilization and enhance product competitiveness in international markets.
