CNOOC to builds offshore wind power plant

by Staff Writers
Beijing (AFP) Oct 17, 2007
China National Offshore Oil Corp, the country's top offshore oil producer, said Wednesday it would construct an offshore wind power plant in a bid to help energy conservation in the country.

The power plant will be located about 60 kilometres (37 miles) offshore in Bohai Bay in northern China and will have a capacity of 1,500 kilowatts, General Manager Fu Chengyu was quoted by Xinhua news agency as saying.

Fu did not say when the construction will complete, nor did he elaborate on other details of the plan.

Speaking on the sidelines of the ongoing Communist Party Congress, Fu said his company focused also on renewable energy and energy conservation technologies apart from its main oil business.

"The national development mode decides the development of our company," he said.

In his party congress opening speech, President Hu Jintao said efforts to protect China's environment and cut its energy use will be the country's priorities for the next five years.

China's high economic growth has led to serious power shortages in recent years, making wind and other alternative energy sources more attractive.
