Guandong DRC publishes opinion on new bidding mechanisms for wind farms
Guangdong is the first province to publish clarifications on the specific mechanisms which will be used to allocate wind farm subsidies following the new competitive on-grid tariff guidelines requirements issued by NEA earlier this year. The document provides some details on the scoring scale which will enable to compare bidders, as well as guidelines on procedures for applying for subsidies. (GD DRC)
According to theNEA policy issued earlier this year (NEA), the tariff related score for both onshore and offshore wind farms should account for at least 40% of total score. The remaining criteria are listed in the pie charts above. For offshore projects, the business capability score, which relies on a specific scale for rating references, is the second most important criteria with a weight of 30%. For onshore projects progress on preliminary construction is given more importance.
Jan to Jul energy statistics published by NEA
From Jan to Jul, power consumption in China reached 3,877.5TWh, a 9% increase yr-on-yr. Wind showed the strongest growth, with new installations of 9.46 GW, with utilization hours improving as well. (NEA)
Azure has summarized key information in the graphs below:
3-Gorges Guangdong 400MW offshore wind farm approved by Yangjiang DRC
The project has a sea area of approximately 67km2, waterdepth of 21 to 26m and distance to shore of 15.9km. The project will feature 73 5.5MW wind turbines with a projected annual production of 1.5TWh.
SPIC secures project approval for 2 offshore wind farms in Guangdong province
SPIC Jieyang Jinghai 150MW & Shenquan PhaseI 400MW offshore wind projects have been approved by Jieyang DRC. The two projects will require a combined number of 101 5.5MW wind turbines. Both projects plan to start construction by the end of 2018 and will be operating in 2021.(JYDRC)
Mingyang is the only turbine supplier with a 5.5MW turbine on the market and is securing a large number of orders in Guangdong province where it is headquartered, especially this year as developers are rushing to secure approvals while the 0.85 CNY / kWh feed in tariff is still available.
Mingyang and SPIC sign an MOU for cooperation on offshore wind
Mingyang and SPIC signed an MOU regardingfixed as well as floating offshore wind. The strategic partnership will be focused on offshore wind power development, clean energy equipment supply, technical cooperation, international projects, information sharing, engineering construction and ancillary services.(BJX)
