Huaneng Group to Invest in Dafeng Offshore Wind Farm

China Huaneng Group, one among the state owned power generation companies in China managed by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China, has announced its plans to invest around € 687 million to construct a colossal offshore wind park.

The Dafeng offshore wind farm in eastern Jiangsu Province located 55 kilometers away from the coast is expected to have 100 wind turbines manufactured and delivered by Sinovel one of the principal wind turbine manufacturers from China. The wind generation park is expected to produce 740 million kWh of renewable electric power annually. The energy produced is equivalent to saving 250,000 tons of coal from usage, and 2.4 million cubic meters of water. The energy produced will offset 620,000 tons of CO2. 6,000 tons of sulfur dioxide and 2,500 tons carbon soot annually. The company has signed a power supply agreement with six energy operators such as Zhejiang Machinery and Electrical, Sinovel Wind Group, China Shipbuilding Industry, Dongfang Electric Corp, and Shanghai Electric Group for a total supply of 1.8 GW and in turn each company will supply 300 MW of clean wind energy.

Shiming Zhao, Huaneng Renewable’s General Manager, said that the first phase of the project for 300 MW is expected to be approved by the government during the second half of the year 2011.
