Goldwind enters Pakistan market

The agreement also includes two years of operations and maintenance service. This is Goldwind’s first order from Pakistan and South Asia and the first joint overseas project for Goldwind and Three Gorges. So far, Goldwind has expanded its global footprint with wind power projects on six continents.

The project is located in Jhimpir, Sindh, Pakistan, which has varied weather with an average temperature of 27 °C. The district is semi-arid and dusty. To withstand this environment, Goldwind’s R&D team has designed the GW77/1500 high-temperature unit for use in a temperature range of -20 to 45 °C with a sealed, dust-proof design.
During the signing ceremony, Bi Yaxiong, Deputy General Manager of Three Gorges, said, “This is Three Gorges’ first overseas wind power project. The reason why we have chosen Goldwind as the turbine provider and maintenance service provider is that we strongly believe in Goldwind’s R&D capabilities as well as product and service quality.” Wu Gang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Goldwind, said, “This project is our first in Pakistan and the South Asia region. We must leverage our global project management experience and adhere to the highest standards of project execution so that this wind power project is a success for all stakeholders.”

Goldwind is currently constructing the Shady Oaks project in Illinois, the Adama project in Ethiopia, and the Mortons Lane project in Australia. Turbines for the Villonaco project in Ecuador, which Goldwind announced in August, are in transit. The company also signed a contract for a project in Chile earlier this month.
