Southern China to Invest Big in its First Offshore Wind Farm

From Engineering Source

Fujian Datang International Wind Power Development plans to invest up to 6 billion yuan (US$952 million) to build the first offshore wind farm off China’s southeastern coast.

The Liu’ao Hai wind farm will be located off the coast of Fujian province in southern China near the Liu’ao Peninsula. Fujian Datang has already invested 30 million yuan on the completion of a feasibility study and submitted the results to China’s State Energy Bureau for approval.

The proposed wind farm will employ a number of three to five megawatt turbines for a total capacity of 300 megawatts, and is expected to generate between 0.6 and 0.73 terawatt hours of electricity per annum.

The project will reap strong benefits from its location near the Taiwan Strait. The strait produces a funnelling effect which helps create strong winds, making coastal Fujian an ideal location for the development of offshore wind power sites.
