Asia's largest offshore wind farm
China Huaneng Group successfully completed 240 hours of trial operation of its offshore wind project and thus entered commercial operation phase.
This is the first offshore wind energy project of China Huaneng Group, and Asia's largest offshore installed capacity project of wind energy so far, according to China Huaneng Group, one of the five largest state-owned electric utility enterprises in China.
Located off the city of Nantong, in eastern China’s Jiangsu province, the wind energy project has a total installed capacity of 300 megawatt with 70 wind turbines.
Once put into operation, the project is expected to produce about 820 million kWh of electricity on average per year. According to China Huaneng Group, significant environmental benefits are expected, including the saving of 250,200 tons of standard coal and the reduction of 550,500 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, the reduction of 100,000 tons of fly ash per year and the saving of 2.4 million cubic meters of water per year.
