On August 27, the 2022 World Conference on Clean Energy Equipment was held in Deyang City, Sichuan Province. Shanghai Electric Wind Power Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Shanghai Electric Wind Power”) won the “2022 Leading Clean Energy Equipment” with its WG5.55F-172 turbine under the wind turbine category.
Chinese seas are characterized by a low average wind speed and hugely-different velocities between the north and south. The award-winning turbine is specifically developed for Chinese seas with low-to-medium wind speeds and can operate with higher efficiency and reliability by using the blade certified by both domestic and international organizations, an efficient cooling system with low energy consumption, a mature and reliable yaw system and a better electrical system. The turbine design is improved in an all-rounded manner through drive chain innovations which increases transmission efficiency and power generation profits and makes generator maintenance unnecessary.
Based on its largest archive of offshore wind turbines in China, Shanghai Electric Wind Power presents a panorama of China’s development history in this regard. As China’s offshore market matures, Shanghai Electric Wind Power has found its own product and technology path that places equal emphasis on product verification, secondary development, strategic cooperation and independent R&D, and created holistic solutions that suit China’s offshore wind resources better. In response to the clients’ needs, Shanghai Electric Wind Power inaugurated the “Lead Goose” program on August 18, 2022, which boils accomplished projects down to necessary success factors through life-cycle tracing in order to reproduce successes in more scenarios.
