Chinese wind turbine manufacturer Mingyang Smart Energy has won the bids from China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) for two sections totaling 700 MW of the 1 GW Fanshiyi 1 offshore wind farm in Yangjiang, Guangdong, China.
The Fanshiyi offshore wind farm is located 60 kilometres off the coast and has an average water depth of 40-48 metres.
Mingyang’s MySE 14-260 offshore wind turbines, the latest upgrade to the MySE 12-242 model, will make their domestic debut on the wind farm, with fifty units to be delivered in the third quarter of 2023.
”This project is historic, proving our market competitiveness in innovating and improving large offshore wind technologies. We will look forward to continued success as we accelerate commercial offshore wind deployment globally,” MingYang said in a social media post.
CGN plans to develop the Fanshiyi project in two phases, Fanshiyi 1 and Fanshiyi 2. The wind turbine tender relates to the 1 GW Fanshiyi 1 phase.
Goldwind has reportedly secured the order for the remaining 300 MW section.
The scope of the supply includes wind turbine equipment, towers and related services, special tools, spare parts, and consumables within the warranty period.
The wind farm will also feature a 500 kV offshore substation, 500 kV export cables, and 66 kV inter-array cables.
