The thermal installation margin is a binding indicator that reflects the redundancy of local thermal power installation and power supply. The early warning financial indicator for thermal power construction is a recommended indicator, which reflects the economics of self-use thermal power projects in the province and provides decision-making reference for the planning and construction of thermal power projects.

 

 

Mingyang wins bid for 1,400MW of offshore wind projects

Mingyang has won the bid for the procurement of wind turbines for CGN’s Shanwei Offshore Wind Power Project, for a total capacity of 1,400MW, and a total bidding price of 8,602.49 million CNY, which indicates a WTG price of 6,144 CNY/kW. (CGN)

As Goldwind’s bids in the Shanwei Houhu project and Jiazi I & II projects are only 0.55% and 1.25%, respectively, higher than those of Mingyang’s, it can be seen that current bidding for offshore wind turbines is becoming more and more competitive. These prices for ~6MW range turbines are also significantly lower than 1 year ago, when the same turbines were bidding in the 8k range.
