NEWCOM PLANS FOUR MORE WIND FARMS IN MONGOLIA WITH 400MW CAPACITY

Newcom Group's Clean Energy LLC plans to build as much as 400 megawatts of wind-powered energy capacity at four sites throughout Mongolia.
“There’s huge potential… we could supply electricity to Northeast Asia. That’s our goal,” said Clean Energy chief executive Ts. Sukhbaatar, without revealing specific timelines.
The company’s most ambitious project is a 250-megawatt wind farm it wants to build in Khanbogd Soum, near the massive Oyu Tolgoi gold and copper mine in Umnugobi Aimag. “The wind resources are very high there,” Sukhbaatar said.
Clean Energy plans to build 50-megawatt wind farms at Tsogttsetsi Soum, Umnugobi Aimag, Sainshand Soum, Dorngobi Aimag, and near the city of Choir, Dornod Aimag. Clean Energy switched on the 50 megawatt Salkhit wind farm—the country’s first and only such installation—in June 2013, where General Electric installed its 1.6 Megawatt turbines.
Last February, Germany’s Ferrostaal Industrial Projects revealed plans to invest approximately USD 120 million to purchase a majority stake in a 52 Megawatt wind farm at an undisclosed location in the eastern Gobi Desert.
“The potential (in Mongolia) is enormous—it’s an issue of getting it to market," Steve Sawyer, secretary general of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), said earlier this month in Beijing.
