Dongfang Turbines to Spin on Two Chinese Offshore Wind Farms

Chinese wind turbine manufacturer Dongfang Electric Corporation (DEC) has won contracts to supply wind turbines for two offshore wind projects in Chinese waters with a combined capacity of 360 MW.

DEC will provide its 7.5 MW turbines for the 300 MW Zheneng Taizhou No. 1 offshore wind farm in the East China Sea, off the Zhejiang province.

This is the first offshore wind project on which DEC will cooperate with Zheneng, the turbine maker said.

The second wind farm is being developed off the Fujian province by China Three Gorges.

The 100 MW Three Gorges Pingtan offshore wind farm is located off Pingtan and will feature DEC’s 10 MW offshore wind turbines. DEC will reportedly supply six of its 10 MW turbines for the project. The remaining turbines will reportedly be supplied by Jinfeng Technology.

DEC put the prototype 10 MW wind turbine into operation in July 2020.
