China urged to rein in wind turbine prod`n capacity expansion

China must strictly control the expansion of wind power equipment manufacturing and strengthen its testing and certification work to maintain the healthy development of its wind turbine manufacturing industry, said Shi Lishan, an official with the National Energy Administration, on Wednesday.

Beijing - China must strictly control the expansion of wind power equipment manufacturing and strengthen its testing and certification work to maintain the healthy development of its wind turbine manufacturing industry, said Shi Lishan, an official with the National Energy Administration, on Wednesday.

Over the past years, China's wind turbine production sector has been posting rapid growth and a complete industry chain is already taking shape. China is currently capable of producing 1.5-MW wind turbines in large scale, and has already put into operation self-developed 3-MW wind turbines.

However, volatile wind power and severe weather in northern China is threatening the existing power grid and hampering wind power's development.
