Chinese renewable energy equipment maker Ming Yang Smart Energy Group Ltd (SHA:601615) has won an order to deliver turbines for the 100-MW Zhuanghe offshore wind project in China.
The contract was awarded by China Datang Corporation (HKG:1798), MingYang said on Tuesday without disclosing its value. Under the deal, the manufacturer will supply 19 MySE5.2-166 turbines, expecting deliveries to begin in April 2021.
The equipment will be powering the Zhuanghe wind park that will be located off the coast of Dalian City.
Ming Yang noted that this is its first offshore turbine order in China’s northeastern region, where the wind conditions are similar to those of sites in Japanese and South Korean waters.
China Datang and Ming Yang previously partnered in the 300-MW Datang Jiangsu Binhai project, which uses 50 MySE3.0-135 turbines and 46 3.3MW machines by China's Jinfeng Technology. The offshore wind farm in the East China Sea was switched on in 2019.
