MingYang Smart Energy Group of China has been awarded a contract to supply 11-MW offshore wind turbines for projects totaling 1 GW in China.
The contract, which was announced on Friday on LinkedIn, involves the 600-MW Qingzhou 1 and 400-MW Qingzhou 2 sites, both of which are located in deep seas off the coast of Guangdong province (Yuedian). The facilities, which are expected to be operational by 2023, will feature the updated MySE 11-230 typhoon-proof hybrid-drive turbine, which was introduced in July 2020.
MingYang predicts that the wind farms will create 3.6 billion kWh per year, offsetting 2.78 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
In the summer of 2021, the business revealed a 16-MW hybrid-drive offshore wind turbine.
