Chinese shipbuilder Jiangsu Hantong Ship Heavy Industry has held a keel laying ceremony for a jack-up wind farm installation vessel (WFIV) being built for Nantong Ocean Water Construction.

The vessel’s keel was laid on 18 April.

Once constructed, the WFIV will be able to operate in water depths of up to 40 metres.

China plans to invest CNY 2.5 trillion (USD 361 billion) in renewable energy projects by 2020, according to the country’s National Energy Administration (NEA).

Currently, China ranks third in the world in terms of installed offshore wind capacity, behind the UK and Germany.

At the end of 2016, China had 1,627MW of installed offshore wind capacity.

The country plans to have 5GW of installed offshore wind capacity by 2020.
