MingYang hits 1 GW milestone with CGN’s Nanpeng Island offshore wind farm
MingYang Smart Energy now has 1,000 MW in installed offshore wind turbines, according to the company’s social media post from 11 August.
The company reached the milestone with the Yangjiang Nanpeng Island offshore wind farm, owned by China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN), which will feature 73 MySE5.5-155 wind turbines.
MingYang also said its order backlog in offshore wind stands at 5.94 GW.
OffshoreWIND.biz contacted the wind turbine supplier to get an update on the number of the wind turbines now installed at the Yangjiang Nanpeng Island site, with MingYang yet to respond.
Construction of the 401.5MW wind farm started in mid-2018.
The first turbine was installed in July last year, and the first batch of wind turbines began operating in October.
The wind farm, located off the coast of the Guangdong Province, is expected to be fully operational by the end of the year.
