Wind turbines damage a section of Great Wall

A wind power company in central China has been fined 400,000 yuan (US$61,730) for its illegal installation of wind turbines that damaged a 2-kilometer section of the Great Wall.

The 1-billion-yuan project by Henan Zhongtou Yingke Co Ltd has been suspended after damages were found last month in the one of the wall’s oldest sections in Yexian County, Henan Province, said Li Shujin, head of the province’s cultural relics bureau.

This section of the Great Wall dates back to the Spring and Autumn Period (771 to 403 BC), about 400 years older than the sections that stretch over the rolling hills north of Beijing, the Beijing Times reported today.
