Ming Yang Wind Power wins first India turbine order
China Ming Yang Wind Power Group Ltd, based in Zhongshan, Guangdong province, won a 150-megawatt order in India after becoming the first Chinese turbine maker to receive approval to sell machines in Asia’s second-biggest wind market as sales slow at home. The project by an undisclosed developer in Maharashtra state will use 1.5-megawatt turbines, Hiren Shah, CEO of Ming Yang’s local unit, Global Wind Power Ltd, said in Mumbai. The machine was approved for sale by the government-run Center for Wind Energy Technology in October. Chinese manufacturers such as Ming Yang, Sinovel Wind Group Co and Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co are seeking to diversify beyond their home market.
