WIND POWER PROJECT PLANNED FOR CHINA'S QINGDAO
BEIJING, Jan 13 Asia Pulse - China will construct Asia's largest wind turbines in Qingdao, east China's Shandong Province, in collaboration with Germany.
According to the plan, five wind turbines with a capability of five megawatts each will be installed in the sea offshore from Qingdao. They will serve as power generating units for the maritime events of the 2008 Olympic Games to be held in Qingdao, China Daily reported Friday.
An exhibition centre will also be set up nearby to provide information on environmental protection.
The six projects, to be signed at the three-day Second Sino-German Forum on Environment that opened Thursday in Qingdao, will cost nearly US$121 million.
The forum attracted representatives from economic and environmental protection circles of the two countries. It will highlight issues surrounding sustainable development and a circular economy, Zhu Guangyao, vice-minister of the State Environmental Protection Administration, was quoted as saying.
He said Germany is well-known for its advanced technology and rich management experience in the fields of renewable energy and a circular economy.
