The Laba Mountain Wind Power Project will further promote the construction of the Yalong River Basin Clean Energy Base, one of the nine large clean energy bases of the country, and play an active role in realizing the country's goal of carbon emission peak and carbon neutrality. The Laba Mountain Wind Power Project is the first wind power project to be constructed in the Yalong River Basin Clean Energy Base since the 14th Five-Year Plan. In March 2021, the country's 14th Five-Year Plan and the Long-Range Objectives through the Year 2035 clearly listed the Yalong River Basin Clean Energy Base as one of the nine large clean energy bases in China.

To help the country realize its carbon emission peak and carbon neutrality goals, the Yalong River Hydropower Development Co., Ltd.has put forward its “four-stage”strategy of the basin's new energy and pump-storage development on the basis of its hydropower development. According to national plan, the Yalong River Basin Water-Wind-Solar Hybrid Green and Clean Renewable Energy Demonstration Base has a total installed capacityof over 80 million kilowatts, of which wind power and photovoltaic power generation capacity exceeds 40 million kilowatts while pump-storage power generation exceeds 10 million kilowatts. After completion, it will become one of the largest green and clean renewable energy bases in the world.

For years, the Yalong River Hydropower Development Co., Ltd. relies on its advantages of “one entity developing one river”, multi forms of power generation complementing each other, strong regulating ability and solid foundations, takes the lead in exploring the water-wind-solar power hybrid model, and spares no effort in promoting the construction of the Yalong River Basin Water-Wind-Solar Hybrid Green and Clean Renewable Energy Demonstration Base.

The Yalong River Hydropower Development Co., Ltd. is the large power generation enterprise in Sichuan Province. After the Laba Mountain Wind Power Project is completed, total wind power installation capacity of the company will hit 600,000 kilowatts, bringing its green and clean renewable energy generation capacity to total at nearly 20 million kilowatts. After the construction of the Yalong River Basin Water-Wind-Solar Hybrid Green and Clean Renewable Energy Demonstration Base is completed, it will be able to supply 220 billion kilowatt hours of clean electricity per year, which is equivalent to saving 70 million tons of standard coal and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 180 million tons per year. The constant supply of the Yalong River Basin clean electricity will help build the “clean, low carbon, safe and highly efficient” modern energy system and make contributions to realizing the country's carbon emission peak and carbon neutrality goals.

Construction of the Laba Mountain Wind Power Project will give further push to rural vitalization in the ethnic minority regions and promote local social-economic development. Liangshan Prefecture is the largest wind power base in Sichuan Province and also a major clean energy industry base in Southwest China. A landmark project in accelerated development of wind power in Liangshan Prefecture, the construction of the Laba Mountain Wind Power Project marks a new step forward in the construction of the national level clean energy industry base in the prefecture. Construction of the project will give a strong push to local industry development and social progress and become an important economic growth engine, which is of special importance in consolidating the achievements of poverty reduction and promoting rural vitalization.

With a total investment of over 1.5 billion yuan, the Laba Mountain Wind Power Project will contribute about 60 million yuan in taxes and fees to Liangshan Prefecture during its construction and create more than 1,000 jobs for the prefecture. In the meantime, it will provide training to the employed and equip a large group of local people with relevant skills. After the project is put into operation, it will contribute about 40 million yuan per year in taxes and fees to Liangshan Prefecture.

Intelligent construction will be highlighted in building a new generation of full-life cycle digital intelligent and high-altitude mountain wind farms.

Relying on the innovative management model of “the special quality of the Laba Mountain wind power equipment” and using wind turbine equipment as the main breakthrough point of intelligence, the Yalong River Hydropower Development Co., Ltd. spares no effort in building a new generation of full-life cycle digital intelligent and high altitude mountain wind farms.

Based on the innovation and application of the closed-loop control concept on the basis of the cloud-edge synergy mode, the Laba Mountain Wind Farm will maximize the potential of the power generation units and strive to build a new generation of wind power intelligent control system to increase the power generation by more than 5%; meanwhile, amulti-dimensional assessment of turbine unit conditions is carried out to provide the best decision-making solutions for the operation and maintenance of wind farm units, and through the multi-angle control of wake, interval crossing, sector, rain erosion and service life extension, etc., to reach a balance between power generation and unit conditions.In the meantime, through data-driven intelligent operation-maintenance and optimized operation management of the wind farms, passive operation-maintenance can be upgraded to active operation-maintenance and even further to appointed operation-maintenance. Through the algorithm model and the closed-loop mechanism of wind farm management and control, it is expected that operation of the wind farms can be unattended. The creating of higher-quality and more intelligent wind turbine equipment will be able to provide core support for the project to become a world-class wind farm with advanced technology, intelligent operation and maintenance, grid-friendly and ecological friendly features.

The company is determined to build the Laba Mountain Wind Power Project into a “model project” and “first class project” through high standard and high quality construction.
