Shanghai to Issue Offshore Wind Tender by Year-End
The Shanghai Development and Reform Commission plans to issue a tender for the development of 200MW of capacity at the Fengxian offshore wind farm by the end of the year.
Located in the north side of Hangzhou Bay some 12 kilometres off the coast, the 400MW Fengxian offshore wind farm comprises four blocks. This tender covers the two eastern blocks.
The plans were revealed in the recently issued Shanghai Offshore Wind Power Construction Plan 2019, and the Competitive Work Plan for Fengxian Offshore Wind Power Project.
The Shanghai Electric Power Company has also issued relevant opinions on the project's grid connection.
