Wind power in China
China is the world’s largest wind power market with an installed capacity of some 60 gigawatts. The huge annual installation volume will continue as the government has set a target of a capacity of 150 gigawatts to be installed by 2020. As a supplier, Siemens is first in line and contributes to the implementation of the ambitious Chinese goals with new production plants for blades and nacelles in Shanghai.
A new challenge - wind power in China
Siemens Wind Power is one of the world’s leading enterprises in the development and construction of onshore, offshore, and coastal wind power plants and keeps pushing the envelope. About 30 years of experience in wind energy are the basis for reliable technology that enable the highly profitable utilization of wind energy, which paves the way for a cleaner and greener future of power generation.
Siemens Wind Power has a proven track record for delivering wind power projects on time and within budget. As a market leader, the company combines technological innovation, experience, and expertise to deliver readily available one-stop solutions. Designed to comply with major grid codes, solutions from Siemens Wind Power can come fully “plug-and-play-ready.” They also provide excellent investment protection, as they are widely renowned for their outstanding availability and durability, and the company’s service team is dedicated to keeping the turbines running optimally throughout their entire life cycle.
Demand for electricity is skyrocketing in China due to an unprecedented wave of industrialization and generally increased quality of life. This redefines the required dimensions of power generation and power transmission facilities completely. Siemens provides solutions that help meet the soaring demand in an economically efficient, sustainable, resource-efficient, and reliable manner.
Together with its local partners, Siemens provides the technological basis for sustainable improvements to the Chinese energy mix: steam, gas, and combined cycle power plants that take efficiency to the next level. UHV DC transmission technology that makes possible the low-loss transmission of more than five gigawatts of power from remote regions to the urban centers where power is needed most. Large-scale wind power solutions that support the implementation of the ambitious Chinese wind power aims.
Many Siemens products help reduce our environmental footprint and combat climate change. These products make up the Siemens Environmental Portfolio and usually offer a threefold advantage: They benefit the customers through low energy costs and higher productivity. They help protect the environment and the climate. They preserve and improve the living and environmental conditions of future generations.
The Siemens Environmental Portfolio largely consists of capital goods with long life cycles. It mainly comprises products and systems, such as combined cycle power plants and intelligent building technologies, that are far more energy-efficient than comparable solutions, renewable energy systems and components, such as wind turbines and steam turbines for solar-thermal power plants, and environmental technologies for cleaner water and air. To qualify for the Siemens Environmental Portfolio, which is annually approved by the Siemens Sustainability Board and reviewed by independent auditors, a product or solution must fall into one of these three categories.
