China Merchants to build 300 MW project in home market


Renewable energy project developer China Merchants New Energy Group (CMNE) has signed a deal with the Chinese city of Xingtai to build 300 MW of solar projects.

CMNE is set to begin construction this year on an initial 100 MW project in the city, located in China’s Hebei province south of Beijing, the company announced this week.

The company, which did not reveal financial details of the Xingtai enterprise, formed a joint venture earlier this month with Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps Investment Co. to invest CNY 3 billion ($489 million, €378 million) to develop some 300 MW of solar farms in the Xinjiang province in northwestern China by 2015.
