Rudong OWF Project Starts Producing Power

China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) reported that the 152 MW Rudong offshore wind farm demonstration project started producing power after the first six Siemens 4 MW turbines were connected to the grid.

The Rudong project is located some 25 kilometers east of Nantong City, Jiangsu Province, in water depths of around 15 meters.

The farm comprises 38 Siemens 4 MW turbines, and is the first project carried out in accordance to the Double Ten standard issued by China’s State Oceanic Administration in 2011 which states that offshore wind farms must be built at least 10 kilometers from the shore and in depths of over 10 meters.

The first monopile at the wind farm was installed in late May 2015, and the first turbine was erected in September 2015.

Once completed, the wind farm is expected to generate around 388 million KWh of power annually.
