China’s first floating wind platform Delivered
The semisub platform will sail away early next week and arrive offshore Guangdong a week later to integrate with an offshore wind project developed by China Three Gorges.
On 8 June, Chinese yard Wison Offshore & Marine has delivered the country’s first floating wind platform in Zhoushan, Zhejiang.
The platform has an overall width of 91 meters, a depth of 32 meters, a design draft of 13.5 meters, and a wind field water exchange of more than 13,000 tons, which can withstand the complex, harsh, and extreme sea conditions in the South China Sea.
The single capacity of the floating wind power test prototype is 5,500 kilowatts, and the diameter of the impeller is 158 meters. The full power generation of the floating wind power test prototype can reach 5,500 kilowatts per hour, and it can provide green and clean energy for 30,000 households every year.
