GLOBALink | Chinese company helps build wind plant in Italy
A Chinese company is helping build a wind power plant based in the southern Italian city of Taranto, once known for environmental woes tied to one of Europe's largest steel smelters.
The "Taranto Off-Shore Project," which includes 10 turbines producing 3 megawatts of power each, will be completed in part with Chinese equipment supplier Ming Yang Smart Energy Group Ltd.
The plant built on the heel of Italy's boot-shaped peninsula is expected to provide electrical power to around 18,500 families with near-zero greenhouse gas emissions.
