China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group (CGN) has announced the start of construction of two offshore wind farms off the eastern coast of the Guangdong Province that will have a total installed capacity of 900MW.
In December 2018, CGN started building a control centre for the 500MW Houhu and 400MW Huizhou offshore wind farms.
The Houhu project will be built off Lufeng City and is planned to be commissioned by the end of 2021. The Huizhou offshore wind farm, located near the Huidong Port Area of the Huizhou Port, is expected to be put into operation in mid-2022.
CGN states that this is its first batch of offshore wind projects initiated in eastern Guangdong.
