Yangjiang Nanpeng Island offshore wind farm fully connected

The Yangjiang Nanpeng Island offshore wind project in China has been fully connected to the grid.

MingYang Smart Energy installed the last of its 73 MySE5.5MW hybrid-drive turbines at the 401.5 MW wind farm at the end of November.

According to the company, just from 1 to 16 December the team achieved a record of completing the commissioning of 36 turbines.

The first turbine was installed at the site off the Guangdong Province in July last year and the first batch of turbines began operating in October.

Project developer China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) also awarded MingYang with Red Coral Award for its contributions to the construction of the offshore wind project.
