Largest Offshore Wind Farm in China Fully Grid Connected
The 802 MW Jiangsu Qidong, China’s largest offshore wind farm, achieved a full capacity grid connection on Saturday, 25 December.
The Jiangsu Qidong offshore wind farm comprises three projects; H1, H2, and H3, each with an accompanying offshore booster station.
The wind farm is located between 31 and 40 kilometres off the coast of Qidong, Nantong Province, covering an area of 114.5 square kilometres.
It comprises 134 wind turbines of seven different models from four different domestic manufacturers.
The first turbine was installed at the site in early February and the final unit was erected in early December.
The project, valued at over EUR 2 billion, is owned and developed by Jiangsu Huawei Wind Power Co, and Qidong Hua Er Rui Wind Power Technology Co.
The wind farm’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor is PowerChina Huadong.
The groundbreaking ceremony marking the start of the wind farm’s construction was held in April 2020.
