NEA issues Typhoon Damage Prevention Guidance for the Power Industry

The National Energy Administration (NEA) recently issued a "Guidance for the Power Industry to Prevent and Respond to Typhoon Disasters." The NEA requires all power generation companies to strictly implement practices and measures to prepare for typhoons and other natural disasters. Nuclear power plants should prioritize nuclear safety, and plan for an emergency power supply and other operational maintenance to guarantee internal operation in case of an external power cut. Coal-fired power plants need to be prepared with a sufficient reserve of fuels and should work to enhance the plants’ safety. Wind farms should closely monitor and protect wind turbines from high risks, and PV stations should ensure fixation of equipment and undertake anti-flooding measures. (NEA)

Sichuan onshore wind power FIT drops to 0.47 CNY/kWh in 2020

The Sichuan Provincial DRC has issued the “Notice on the Implementation of the Wind Power Feed-in Tariff Policy (2019)No.295”. The FITs of newly approved centralized onshore wind projects are determined by bidding competition and should not be higher than the guiding price of the resource area where the project is located. Sichuan has adjusted the guiding price for the year 2020 to 0.47 CNY/kWh (including tax). The policy also states that Sichuan Province is a type IV resource area for onshore wind power. Onshore wind power projects that were newly approved in 2019 and that are in line with government planning and admitted to financial subsidy planning can still enjoy a guiding price of 0.52 CNY/kWh (including tax).

China launches first jack-up vessel with 1300t leg encircling crane

Tiejianfengdian01, a jack-up vessel for offshore wind turbine installation owned by CRCC Harbour and Channel Engineering Bureau Group, was launched in Qidong on July 19. The vessel is 105m long, 42m wide with 8.5m moulded depth and 85m leg length. The maximum water depth for operation is 50m and maximum endurance is 3000 nautical miles. The vessel is equipped with a 1300t leg encircling crane, the largest in China; a frequency conversion control system, a DP2 system that can help resist level16 typhoon (super typhoon); and an IHC S-3000 hydraulic hammer, also the largest of its kind in China.
