Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems has opened a facility in Inner Mongolia to capture more of the Chinese alternative energy market, the Wall Street Journal reported. The company plans to build a turbine with bigger blades tailored for Chinese conditions and will produce 800 turbines a year, said Lars Andersen, president of Vestas China operations. Vestas is ramping up production in China at a time Beijing is promoting alternative energy to deal with worsening pollution. China’s wind-power sector is on track to generate 100 gigawatts by 2020, more than triple the original target, said Fang Junshi, an official with the National Energy Administration. At present, China gets only 12.5 gigawatts of its total 700 gigawatts of power usage from wind.
