Offshore Wind Power Industry To Take Off in China's Fujian Province: China's Fujian province, with some of the

According to its national plan, China’s installed capacity is expected to reach 5 GW between 2011 and 2015 and jump to 30 GW by 2020. The Chinese government has listed Fujian province as one of key provinces for offshore wind power development. Fujian has inherent advantages in that the winds brought by the frequent tropical storms attribute to abundant resources along its coastal areas. Noticeably, the high, consistent average wind speed makes Minjiangkou, a locale in the province, one of the ideal locations for harnessing its wind resources. Fujian province is also the location of China's first 5-MW direct drive permanent-magnet generator wind turbine. Once the entire project is complete and connected to the grid, it will be able to generate approx. 15 GWh of power annually. Insiders believe this is just the beginning of a major boom in the wind power sector across the p...
