The registered capital of Beigang New Energy Investment is 100 million yuan ($14.5 million).
The joint venture will commit itself to the in-depth development of new energy projects in Qinzhou Port Area and logistics park and the phased construction of distributed photovoltaic and distributed wind power projects.
The partnership is expected to deepen cooperation on the supply chain management and digitisation of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor.
It will also see cooperation in green port, clean energy, and many other fields to help achieve green, low-carbon, and intelligent development.
This comes as part of COSCO SHIPPING’s greater push towards a more environmental future.
In December 2022, COSCO SHIPPING successfully connected three wind turbines to the grid for power generation at the Port of Tianjin.
More recently, WinGD announced that it will supply 10X92DF-M methanol-fuelled engines to four 16,000 TEU containerships for COSCO SHIPPING Lines.
