An international conglomerate has now closed a deal on financing to construct and manage a new 55 MW wind energy facility in Mongolia.
Located in Dornogobi province, the project will be Mongolia’s third and eventually its largest ever wind energy park. Turbines to power the park of 25 V110-2.0 MW turbines in 2.2 MW power-optimized mode, will be supplied by Danish company Vestas. European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development provide financing.
Traditionally Mongolia’s energy industry has been dominated by coal. Now, Mongolia’s wide open spaces and abundant wind allow for greater reliance on wind energy.
The new wind energy project will help Mongolia meet its energy needs resulting from higher demand, increased industrialization and urbanization trends.
