The project started construction in August 2021 and is designed for 46 wind turbines with a single unit capacity of 3.3 MW.

A total of four wind measuring towers will be set up in and around the wind farm, and they are expected to be completed and connected to the grid for power transmission in October this year.

The other three wind power projects will have a scale of 200,000 kilowatts each and investment of 1.49 billion yuan, 1.28 billion yuan and 1.20 billion yuan, respectively.

These wind power projects will be connected to the grid for power generation in December 2022, and each will be able to generate about 600 million kWh of electricity annually after being connected to the grid.
