Yangjiang DRC approves two Mingyang offshore wind projects
The Development and Reform Commission (DRC) of Yangjiang, a city in China’s southern Guangdong Province, has approved two offshore wind projects to be owned and developped by one of the country’s largest private wind turbine manufacturer Mingyang.
Mingyang Yangjiang Shaba 300MW Wind Farm
Mingyang MySE5.5-7.0MW Installation at Xinghua Bay
The Mingyang MySE5.5-7.0MW platform is already being tested at the Three Gorges Xinghua Bay offshore demonstration project in Fujian. The technology is based on the same platform as the Mingyang 5.5MW turbine, and will be deployed in large volume in the Yangjian projects. Interestingly, these projects are being developed by Mingyang which is both private and a turbine manufacturer, which changes from the usual large state owned utilities which dominate most of the pipeline. Mingyang is also setting up a blade manufacturing base in Yangjiang’s High Tech Development Zone with a capacity of 230 blade set per year (with each set being made of 3 blades).
Jieyang DRC approves SPIC Jieyang Shenquan II 350MW project
The Jieyang DRC has reviewed and approved phase two of SPIC’s Jieyang offshore project application. The project will have a total installed capacity of 750MW, divided into two phases, Shenquan I with 400MW and Shenquan II with 350MW. Shenquan I was approved in August earlier this year with plans to install 73 units of 5.5MW WTG. Shenquan II has plans to use 64 units of 5.5MW WTG. (Jieyang DRC)
A large number of big wind farms are being approved in Guangdong this week. This is driven by a strong will from local governments to boost the local offshore wind industry, as well as by a rush to get projects approved this year in order to benefit from the 0.85 CNY/kWh tariff.
Data shows national wind total installed capacity reached 177GW by end of October
The National Energy Administration (NEA) has released data on the national power industry from January to October 2018. The numbers revealed that by the end of October, the national wind total installed capacity was 177.57MW. From January to October, wind utilization hours totaled 1,724 hrs, an increase of 172 hrs from the same period last year. (NEA)
Imports less than or equal to 6MW now required to pay duties and value-added taxes
The Ministry of Finance has decided to revise relevant catalogues of import tax policies for major technical equipment according to the development of the domestic equipment manufacturing industry and its supporting industries in recent years. Among the revisions, it is now stated that imports of technical equipment of less than or equal to 6MW should pay an import duty and an import value-added tax. (MOF)
Imports of major technical equipment and catalogues not exempt from taxes:
What is also suggested by the policy is that whole wind turbine systems of more than 6MW would not be subject to import duty and import VAT (which sum to more than 20%). Maybe an opportunity for foreign suppliers to sell large turbines in China ?
Reports show rapid development in grid side power storage
Since the beginning of this year, China's grid side energy storage has developed rapidly. At present, local governments and power grid enterprises in Jiangsu, Henan, Qinghai, Gansu and other regions are actively deploying grid side energy storage projects. According to statistics from the CNESA global energy storage project library, from January to September 2018, the installed capacity of electrochemical energy storage connected to China's power grid reached 150MW, of which 140MW was newly installed.
