The Country's First Self-propelled Offshore Wind Power Installation Ship Is Being Built In Wuhan

- Nov 02, 2017-

China energy storage net news: on Oct. 30, the reporter learns from wuhan Marine machinery co., LTD., the company has started manufacturing domestic first installed offshore wind self-propelled type ship, also ZhongDunWei installed offshore wind self-propelled type platform in the world's largest ship.

It is understood that in recent years, China's offshore wind power projects have ushered in a high-speed development period, and the demand for offshore wind power equipment is strong.

Recently, wuhan ship machine 1200 tons of self-propelled jack-up offshore wind installation platform that the success of a construction contract signing, marks the project officially started, the project will also be an important milestone in China's offshore wind power equipment.

At present, the sea wind is become hotspots of investment by international money chasing, compared with onshore wind, offshore wind wind power has more wind energy reserves and quality, as the technology mature and economies of scale, offshore wind may have larger cost down space and development space.

The wuhan ship machine to start manufacturing of self-propelled type offshore wind power installation vessel, compared with the previous fan installed ships, self-propelled jack-up vessel to carry more once fan, reduces the dependence on local port, can achieve in relatively rough seas weather quickly complete the installation work, the self-propelled type wind power installation ship speed up to 7, with 1200 tons of main hook, save the pile driving time and cost.

In 2016, China's offshore wind power capacity increased by 64 percent compared with the same period last year, driving the total installed capacity of China's offshore wind power to the third place in the world.

In the first three quarters of this year, China's offshore wind power equipment capacity reached 190.8 million kilowatts, 3.3 times that of the same period last year.

According to our country existing offshore wind project planning, the next four years offshore wind turbines installed capacity of compound growth rate of not less than 30%, to 2020, China will overfulfil's offshore wind accumulated interconnection target of 5 gw, offshore wind huge space for development.
