The first anti-typhoon floating offshore wind turbine in China was recently hoisted and assembled at the Guanggang Wharf at the Maoming Port, and then delivered to the Yangjiang Shapa Offshore Wind Farm for further installation.
The offshore wind turbine is a very large facility that needs to be operated in the open wharf apron. It has been a challenge for the Guanggang Wharf to tow the oversized and ultra-high equipment into the port.
In order to ensure the smooth entry of the equipment into the port, Guanggang Wharf visited the Maoming Pilot Station to learn about the hydrology and cross flow at the port entrance, and formulated a thorough entry plan with the captain.

The wharf finished hoisting and assembling the first anti-typhoon floating offshore wind turbine in China after two weeks of intensive and orderly preparation.
This innovative installation mode has laid a good foundation for the major equipment hoisting and assembling business at the Guanggang Wharf, and the expansion of deep-sea offshore wind turbine loading and unloading business.
The offshore wind turbine is currently the only floating offshore wind power platform structure with the shallowest water depth, highest typhoon resistance grade, largest wind turbine load and most complex design in the world.
After completion, it can annually provide about 4.7 billion kilowatt-hours of on-grid energy, which can meet the annual electricity consumption of about two million households, save about 1.5 million metric tons of standard coals, and reduce nearly 4 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions. It will also offer strong support for the energy structure transformation in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
