Hong Kong primarily based CNOOC Limited introduced that the primary offshore wind energy challenge has linked to the grid and begun to generate energy.
The offshore wind energy challenge is positioned within the sea space close by Jiangsu Province. The central location of wind farm is about 39 kilometers away from the coast, with a water depth of 12 meters. With a complete put in capability of 300 MW, the challenge is deliberate to be geared up with 67 wind generators. To date, the primary batch of wind generators has linked to grid. The challenge is scheduled to totally come into on-grid manufacturing by the top of 2020, with its annual on-grid energy technology anticipated to succeed in roughly 860 million kWh. It is estimated to save lots of 279,000 tons of normal coal equal, and scale back CO2 emissions by 571,000 tons per 12 months, evaluating with typical coal-fired thermal energy plant with the identical producing capability.
The grid-connected of first offshore wind energy challenge signifies that the Company’s regular progress in selling power transformation and implementing its inexperienced and low-carbon technique. It can even present a clear power provide for the inexperienced growth of the Yangtze River Delta Region.
CNOOC Limited holds 47% curiosity of the collectively developed offshore wind energy challenge in Jiangsu Province.
