Sinohydro Group Ltd. (601669), China’s biggest hydroelectric dam builder, said its board of directors approved plans to invest a total of 1.36 billion yuan ($218 million) to develop solar and wind farm projects.
The company plans to spend about 443 million yuan to build a 40-megawatt solar farm in Dunhuang in China’s northwestern province of Gansu, Sinohydro said today in a statement. The rest will be used to develop two wind farms.
Beijing-based Sinohydro may invest an additional 1.2 billion yuan to set up a finance unit to strengthen capital management and broaden financing channels, it said in a separate statement.
