The Honiton wind farm is located in Bailingmiao Town, Damao County, Baotou city of Inner Mongolia, P.R. China. Phase 2 of the project has an installed capacity of 50 MW with 40 sets of 1250 kW SUZLON turbines. The project generates renewable electricity by utilizing wind power, which is being fed into the North China Power Grid (NCPG) on the basis of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the government. The project will reduce GHG emissions and is a Gold Standard Verified Emission Reduction (GS VER) project.
The project’s net electricity production is expected to be 111 GWh per year, offsetting an equivalent amount that would otherwise be supplied by the primarily coal based electricity on the NCPG. A 32 km 220kV transmission line has been built to connect the wind farm to the local substation.
Rapid growing industry has created chronic air pollution as well as severe water shortages, due to the vast quantities of water consumed by fossil fuel power stations and coal mines in the region. Construction of the Honiton wind farm displaced fossil fuel capacity, thereby reducing emissions of local air pollutants (including SO2, NOx and particulates) and global greenhouse gases. In addition, operation of a wind farm uses significantly less water than the equivalent fossil fuel sized plant, an issue of increasing importance in the region.
