China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG) and Xinjiang Golwind have built the world’s largest offshore wind turbine with a capacity of 16 MW, a rotor diameter of 252 meters and a swept area of approximately 50,000 square meters.
People Daily reports that the innovation “has the world’s largest single-unit capacity and largest impeller, a breakthrough in research and manufacturing high-end to reach the world-class level”.
a unit could produce 66 million kilowatt-hours of clean electricity per year, meeting the annual needs of over 36,000 households. Meanwhile, it is estimated that it will reduce coal consumption by 22,000 tonnes and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 54,000 tonnes.
Lei Mingshan (head of China Three Gorges Corp) told People Daily that “the success of the 16-megawatt wind turbine is a historic leap forward for the country’s wind power equipment manufacturing to compete side by side. Achieve a Global Leadership Positionsetting a new example for the development of this sector across the world”.
China’s offshore wind power industry is growing at an advanced rate as an industrial chain covering turbines, auxiliary equipment, construction and offshore operation has been formed.
On the other hand, the country has initiated plans to develop a modern energy system during the XIV Five-Year Plan. Promotion of wind energy In places with wind resources.
