CNOOC to Build Offshore Wind Power Plant

Company will focus on energy conversation as well.

China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC), the country's top offshore oil producer, said it would construct an offshore wind power plant in a bid to help energy conservation in the country. The power plant will be located about 37 miles offshore in Bohai Bay in northern China and will have a capacity of 1,500 kilowatts, General Manager Fu Chengyu said.

Fu said his company is also focused on renewable energy and energy conservation technologies apart from its main oil business. "The national development mode decides the development of our company," he said.

President Hu Jintao said efforts to protect China's environment and cut its energy use will be the country's priorities for the next five years.

China's high economic growth has led to serious power shortages in recent years, making wind and other alternative energy sources more attractive.
