Inner Mongolia wind farm, Gansu wind farm image
KEPCO’s entry into new/renewable energy business is driven by the imperative to penetrate into overseas new/renewable energy market and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
In Sep. 2005, KEPCO started wind power business for the first time by establishing a joint venture with China Datang Corporation in Gansu Province, China, the region known for abundant wind power.
KEPCO expanded wind power business to Inner Mongolia and completed phase one project (140MW) in Jun. 2007 followed by phase two expansion project. KEPCO is also involved in phase 3 ~ phase 7 projects in Inner Mongolia carried out as follow-up. In Apr. 2010, KEPCO signed an agreement to develop 500MW wind farm with Liaoning province and is continuously expanding investment into wind power business through a joint venture with Gemeng International Co., Ltd. in Shanxi province. As of late 2012, KEPCO is the largest overseas power supplier in China operating 919MW wind power plants in Inner Mongolia, Gansu province and Liaoning province with another 396MW project to be added soon.
In 2013, KEPCO will stretch beyond China and into the Middle East. KEPCO won the bid for a 90MW wind power generation project in Fujeij in Jordan to solidify its business presence as the clean energy service provider in the global market.
