The Goldwind 6MW offshore wind turbine of 3-Gorges’ Yangjian Shaba II has been successfully hoisted, marking the first time a Goldwind offshore wind turbine has been hoisted in the South China Sea.
The 3-Gorges Yangjian Shaba II project has a total installed capacity of 400MW and will feature 31 units 171GW-6.45MW offshore wind turbines. The wind farm is designed for an annual average wind speed of 8m/s and 50 year extreme wind speeds of 57m/s. Due to rough climate conditions, these wind turbines have to satisfy higher typhoon resistance requirements. (Sohu)
