SANY Group has made a history when they exported their five 2.0 MW wind turbines to the Ralls Wind Farm in the United States. For the first time, a Chinese wind technology manufacturer had sold their equipment overseas. 2.0 MW was the largest turbine ever exported by a Chinese manufacturer.
With the growth of SANY’s wind power business, Sany Heavy Energy Machinery Co., Ltd. was established back in 2013. The company quickly grew into a world-class wind technology manufacturer with the mission to create harmony between mankind and nature.
Since its establishment, going global has been SANY Heavy Energy’s long-term vision. A good example is the ADAMA II wind power project in Ethiopia. 102 SANY SE7715 wind turbines were used to construct a 153 MW wind farm, satisfying 20% of the electricity need in the capital Addis Ababa.
The project earned appraisal from senior officials of the Ethiopian government. After making a personal visit to the wind farm, President Mulatu Teshome appreciated the quality of the equipment. He predicted that SANY’s machines would boost up the construction of infrastructure and social development throughout Ethiopia.
During the 2015 Sino-African Cooperation Forum, Chinese President Xi Jinping gave his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma a tour of the SANY wind turbine models that were used for the ADAMA II project. This made several other African leaders to get familiar with SANY’s wind turbines.
The ADAMA II project has since been completed and is now operational. SANY turbines are now recognized in the local market. Thanks to the close cooperation between China and Ethiopia, SANY machinery is set to play a vital role in Ethiopia’s economic development.
SANY also plans to invest 3 billion USD in India over the coming 5 years building wind farms. These farms will generate total power of 2,000 MW, thereby generating 480 million kWh of electricity each year. That is equivalent to half of the power generated by Adani Mundra, India’s largest thermal power plant.
In addition, SANY Heavy Energy is planning to manufacture turbines locally. India will become SANY’s second global wind power manufacturing center after China.
“We are confident that SANY will quickly become one of the world’s top turbine manufactures,” said SANY Heavy Industry Chairman Liang Wengen. SANY Heavy Energy will leave no stones unturned to achieve this goal. With advanced wind power technology, SANY now has doubly-fed, permanent magnet, and independent core technology.
