China’s leading wind turbine maker Goldwind inked a strategic cooperation deal with the city government of Wenzhou, Zhejiang province.
According to the deal, Goldwind will establish a “far & deep-sea” offshore wind net-zero manufacturing headquarters with ¥16.2Bn investment and a deep-sea equipment & services industrial park with ¥2.6Bn.
The two projects include a southern regional headquarter of the firm, a “far&deep-sea floating R&D” headquarters, a large offshore wind manufacturing & export base, an offshore wind services harbour, and a net-zero industrial park.
Wenzhou City currents plans to develop 12.05GW offshore wind and inter-tidal solar projects. The city said it would fully support Goldwind’s efforts in the region.
China’s energy regulator last year kicked off a feasibility study to plan for deep-sea offshore wind development in the nation. The initial conclusion of the research is to develop deep-sea offshore complexes off Shandong, Yangtze River Delta, Fujian South, Guangdong East, and the Beibu Bay.
