12/4/2020 Cinic

 China’s first 10 MW offshore wind turbine has been successfully connected to the grid at the Fuqing Xinghua Bay Phase II Offshore Wind Farm in Fujian Province.

The new turbine helps break a new record for offshore wind power capacity in China and the Asia-Pacific region.

Fujian Province is located near the East China Sea and the Taiwan Strait, with significant geographical advantages and abundant coastal wind energy resources. The 10 MW wind turbines were jointly developed by Dongfang Electric Group and Three Gorges Group in Fuqing Xinghua Bay Phase II, designed for Class I wind areas in Fujian and Guangdong, with strong typhoon resistance.

Hitachi ABB Power Grid’s Hefei transformer production base has developed a 12.5MVA large slender oil-immersed transformer for the application needs of Dongfang Electric Wind Power Co.

“Hitachi ABB Grid has the world’s leading installed transformer capacity. As a market leader, our transformer solutions are widely used in China’s offshore wind power sector to effectively respond to extreme offshore weather and ensure stable and reliable operation of wind power systems.”said Zhang Jianhua, Head of Transformer Business Unit Greater China at Hitachi ABB Power Grid Ltd. and Senior Vice President of ABB Power Grid Investment (China) Ltd..

“We will continue to use technological innovation to drive the large-scale development of domestic offshore wind power and build a sustainable energy future.” he continued.
