China on the way to build the world’s largest offshore wind farm

China: State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC), one of the five biggest power generators in China, is making progress in erecting its 800 MW wind farm off the coast of eastern China’s Yancheng, Jiangsu province.

The second phase of construction is currently underway, including an installation of two 240 MVA power transformers in its floating booster station designed by a Danish company, reports China Daily.

Once installed, it will become Asia’s largest offshore booster station and China’s first booster station to follow European standards.

When completed, the farm will eclipse the 630 MW London Array as the world’s largest offshore wind farm. It is scheduled to go into full operation in 2018.
