Chinese business, driven by the belt and road initiative, are now promoting green energy through the development of wind power projects in Pakistan.
Amazed onlookers clapped as a crane lifted and installed a massive 90 ton wind turbine — and with this 2.5 megawatts wind turbine in place, Chinese heavy machinery giant, Zoomlion, completed the commissioning of Pakistan’s latest, and largest wind-power producing turbine last week.
This is the seventh wind construction project commissioned by the company in Pakistan, after its earlier seven: Indus Wind, ACT 2 Wind, Lakeside Energy, Din Energy, Tricom Wind and Liberty Wind, all contributing to over 500 megawatts of renewable energy.
Chinese business, driven by the belt and road initiative, are now promoting green energy through the development of wind power projects.
At present, wind power makes up a little over six per cent of Pakistan’s total electricity production. All of the country’s wind turbines come from Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology that entered the Pakistani market in 2004. In these years, Zoomlion has fostered local subsidiaries for in-depth localisation and development.
“With the development of the belt and road initiative and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), we will continue to promote the localization strategy by further enhancing the localization construction and the function construction of subsidiaries,” said Zoomlion Concrete Machinery Overseas Marketing Company’s Country Manager, Simon.
