The Gansu Wind Farm Project (also called Jiuquan Wind Power Base) is a group of large wind farms under the construction in western Gansu province in China. The Gansu Wind Farm is located in desert areas near the city of Jiuquan in two localities of Guazhou County and also near Yumen City, in the north-west province of Gansu. The project is one of six national wind power megaprojects approved by the Chinese government and it is expected to grow to 20,000-megawatt by 2020.
The first 3,800-megawatt phase consisted of eighteen 200-megawatt wind farms and two 100-megawatt wind farms.
The second 8,000-megawatt phase consists of forty 200-megawatt wind farms.
The planned capacity is 5,160-megawatt by 2010, 12,710-megawatt by 2015 and 20,000-megawatt in 2020.
In 2012, the approximate installed capacity was 6,000-megawatt. The project is being built by more than 20 developers in two localities in Guazhou County and also near Yumen City. After completion, the entire project may become the world's biggest collective windfarm.
