Located 70 kilometers southeast of the capital city Ulaanbaatar
The 49.6 MW wind farm, the first for Mongolia, marks a new page in the renewable energy sector development in the country and is the first real contribution towards the creating a cleaner and more sustainable Mongolian future.
GE 1.6MW 31 turbines
- Save 1.6 million tons of fresh water
- Offset 180 thousand tons of CO2 emissions
- Reduce coal usage by 122 thousand tons annually
Darkhan City, which locates approximately 230 km North of the capital city Ulaanbaatar, Solar power plant in Darkhan-Uul Province with a capacity of 10 MW was held on January 19, 2017. This solar power plant with a capacity to produce 14.1 million kWh of energy, enough to provide energy for 20,000 households, was built by Mongolia's Solar Power International, Japan's Sharp Corporation and Shigemitsu Shoji.
Furthermore, nearly 15,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions will be prevented through the solar farm.
The power plant employs crystalline solar modules of maximum output of 310W per panel and module conversion efficiency of 15.9%. Approximately 32,000 numbers (72 series) of these modules and peripheral systems are installed on a land of 36 ha.
Clean Energy Asia LLC (CEA) was established in 2012 as a joint venture between Newcom LLC and SB Energy Corp., the renewable energy arm of the SoftBank Group.
Located in the Gobi desert, the Tsetsii Wind Farm has officially begun commercial operations three months ahead of the previously scheduled launch date.
Clean Energy Asia LLC together with its shareholders, Newcom LLC and SB Energy Corp., signed today with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (hereafter “JICA”) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (hereafter “EBRD”) financing agreements to construct a 50MW wind farm in southern Mongolia.
Supported by the Japanese Government, with an investment of USD 23 million from ‘Farm du’ company, the power plant's construction started in 2015 and installation of 46 thousand 848 solar panels.
Therefore it is expected to save 16.6 thousand tons of coal, 103.9 thousand tons of water consumption and to decrease 21.3 thousand tons of carbonic emission a year.
Moreover some 20 green-houses were built on 13 hectare of land within the project and fruits, berries and vegetables such as strawberry and tomatoes will be grown under Japan technology.
‘Gegeen’ 15 MW solar power plant on June 21.
The solar power plant was constructed by ‘Naran teeg’ company with investments from Shigemitsu Shoji Group and Sharp Corporation from Japan, and 'Erchim Teeg' Company from Mongolia. ‘Gegeen’ plant was designed with latest technologies resistant to extreme weather conditions in Mongolia and has the capacity to produce 32 million kW of energy annually.
Greenhouse gas emission will be reduced by 834 thousand tons, in addition to saving of 27 thousand tons of coal and 202 thousand tons of water.
Solar power plant will create 20 permanent workplaces and accumulate revenue of MNT 37.11 billion to the state budget within 25 years.
Sainshand Salkhin Park LLC was established in 2009 with the objective to develop the Sainshand wind farm, located 460 km south-east of Ulaanbaatar nearby the Sainshand City, capital of Dornogobi Province.
The project will bring more than USD 100 million in foreign direct investment into Mongolia and will boost local and national economy by the creation of jobs, the supply of clean energy and the contribution of taxes to the local and national budgets.
The wind farm, with a feed-in capacity of 55 MW, will provide the equivalent of the electricity consumption of more than 100 thousand households in Mongolia. The Sainshand wind farm contributes to a greener economy with a potential reduction of more than 200 thousand tons of CO2 emissions per year.
