China wind farm sets high-altitude records

Image of post in post detailed view


China is testing the capabilities of high-altitude wind turbines in the same mountain range as Mount Everest, as it strives for clean energy. The Zhegu Wind Farm, located in the Tibet autonomous region, recently completed its second phase with the installation of 15 new turbines that are capable of generating up to 3.6 MW each. The wind farm is China's highest-altitude wind farm, with parts reaching up to 5,200 metres above sea level. The turbines are expected to produce 200 million kilowatt-hours of clean electricity annually, which is equivalent to the annual power consumption of 140,000 local households. The project is funded by the state-owned Three Gorges Corporation and is expected to drive local economic and social development while improving the energy structure and promoting tourism in the area.

                    It's impressive to see how China is pushing the boundaries of wind energy by setting high-altitude records for wind farms. It's a positive step towards a more sustainable future.
