11100 MW: Boom China offshore wind power surpasses Britain – installed capacity ranks first in the world

Installed capacity ranks first in the world : According to the official data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, by the end of June, the installed capacity of power generation in China was 2.26 billion kilowatts, of which wind power was 290 million kilowatts, onshore wind power and offshore wind power were 28,079 million and 11.13 million kilowatts, respectively, an increase of 34.7% compared with 2020 and now installed capacity ranks first in the world.

11.13 million kilowatts: China’s offshore wind power installed capacity ranks first in the world

Judging from the global offshore wind power installation scale, according to GWEC data, the cumulative installed capacity of offshore wind power in the past five years has shown an upward trend year; from 14.5GW in 2016 to 35.3GW in 2020, and China’s installed capacity has also reached 7.07GW. , accounting for 20%.

Among them, Europe is the world’s king of installed capacity, and the United Kingdom has sat on the world’s first place with a 10.2GW installed capacity. According to the data of the same period, the installed capacity of offshore wind power in the United Kingdom is 10.78 million kilowatts (in 2020, the new installed capacity in the United Kingdom was only 430,000 kilowatts, which continued to slow down in 202), and China topped the global offshore wind power list with an installed capacity of 11.13 million kilowatts.

China’s offshore wind power: grinding a sword in ten years, installed capacity ranks first in the world compared with onshore wind power.

Globally, Europe is the first place in the cumulative installed capacity of offshore wind power. By 2020, the cumulative installed capacity of offshore wind power in Europe has reached 24.8GW, accounting for 70.37%.

installed capacity ranks first in the world

In Europe, the United Kingdom and Germany have supported the vast majority of the installed capacity, exceeding 70%. Specifically, the cumulative installed capacity of offshore wind power in the United Kingdom reached 10.206 million kilowatts in 2020, accounting for 41.09%. As the strongest global wind power technology strength, Germany has an installed capacity of only 7.728,000 kilowatts.

China’s onshore wind power has been stable at the top of the global installed capacity for many consecutive years, but offshore wind power has been stable. Starting from the calculation of Longyuan Power’s 14 small-capacity fans of 7 manufacturers testing water in Rudong, China’s wind power began in 2009, but China’s real offshore wind power should start from the offshore wind farm of Shanghai’s East Bridge, which is also the first offshore wind power project in Asia.

Here I have to say that Huarui Wind Power, the former king of wind power, used 34 SL3000/90 offshore wind turbines produced by Huarui Wind Power in the first phase of the project, with a total installed capacity of 102,000 kilowatts. On March 20, 2009, the unit began to hoist, and all the installation and commissioning, grid-connected power generation was completed on June 8, 2010. On August 31, 2010, the trial operation assessment and acceptance of the wind turbine were completed and put into commercial operation.

Although there was a certain gap between the single unit capacity and the world’s 5-6MW technology at that time, it was the first offshore fan wind farm made by China itself, which was of milestone significance to China’s offshore wind power development installed capacity ranks first in the world.
