Description

The Project involves construction and operation of wind power generation facilities on a BOO basis for a period of 25 years. The principal component of the Project are wind power generation facilities totaling 49.5 megawatt (MW) and the addition of a 63 MVA power transformer at Dong Shan Electric Booster Station. Power from each wind turbine generator (WTG) will be transmitted at via three transmission lines wiring all units to the nearest transmission lines of Dong Shan Electric booster stations which will be further connected to the Northeast China Grid Company Ltd. (NCGC). In addition the Project will require a 14km access road.1

Objectives and Scope

The Project will promote sustainable growth and environmental improvement in PRC through contributions toward achieving minimum share targets for renewable energy in the generation mix and for wind power generation in particular. The Project will also mitigate significant amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve the energy security of the country by developing indigenous energy sources. By supporting a collaboration between one of the established big-five local power companies and foreign strategic investors with expertise in wind, the Project features a strong model to enhance private sector participation in wind power generation, which is at an early stage and which is crucial for the further development of the sector, and thus will encourage the private sector to invest in wind power projects beyond the Project's interventions. The Project will help Inner Mongolia's economic growth and energy diversification in an environmentally sustainable manner. Finally, by providing long-term CNY financing, the loan will provide the best possible financing solution for the Project under the current market circumstances that would not be available without ADB's participation.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Project is in line with ADB s country strategy for PRC, which includes clean energy development and inclusive growth. The Project is consistent with ADB s private sector operations in the PRC, which focus on the infrastructure and energy sectors, the financial sector, and environmental improvements. The Project is also consistent with ADB s Energy Policy that recommends a reorientation of energy sector activities to address regional and global environmental impacts. By introducing clean technologies, the Project will address regional and global environmental problems by reducing GHG emissions.
