Phase 2 of China’s first foreign-backed offshore wind farm enters construction
EDF Group and China Energy Investment Corporation (CEI) have kicked off the construction of the 200 MW Dongtai V offshore wind project in China.
The project is the second phase of the 500 MW Jiangsu Dongtai wind farm, the first offshore wind project in China built in collaboration with a foreign investor.
The first part of the project, the 300 MW Dongtai IV (H2), went into operation in December last year when all of its 75 4 MW turbines were switched on.
Dongtai V is planned to begin operating in early 2021.
Located 42 km off the coast of Dongtai, Jiangsu Province, Jiangsu Dongtai is also China’s farthest offshore wind farm.
