MingYang 8 MW Turbines to Debut on Xinghua Bay II

Located five kilometers off the coast of Xinghua Bay North, Fujian province, the wind farm will feature typhoon-class MySE 8.0-180 wind turbines.

The turbines have a rated power of 8 MW and a rotor diameter of 180 metres. The turbine maker did not disclose how many units it will deliver for the project.

In 2018, MingYang installed two MySE5.5-155 turbines at CTG’s Xinghua Bay Ⅰ pilot project. The 8 MW model is based on the same technology, the turbine maker said.

CTG plans to install a total of 45 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 280 MW at the Xinghua Bay II.

The wind farm already features the first 8 MW turbine installed in Chinese waters, the Goldwind GW175-8.0 unit.

Third Harbor Engineering is in charge of wind turbine foundation construction and wind turbine installation at the wind farm.
