Shanghai Electric's Offshore Wind Turbine Generator Designed for China's Climate Rolls off Production Line
SHANGHAI, June 24, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Shanghai Electric Wind Power Group Co., 
Ltd.'s<> (Shanghai 
Electric) first EW8.X-230 wind turbine generator rolled off the production line 
at the Putian manufacturing facility on June 10, representing a new milestone 
in China's offshore wind power parity market.

Based on the Poseidon platform, the EW8.X-230 is a generator designed for the 
medium-low wind speeds normally experienced just above the sea surface off the 
Chinese shoreline, as well as the different stresses placed on the equipment 
dependent on wind direction. 

Despite the average low wind speeds, the generator provides a cost-effective 
solution for the utilization of wind as an energy resource to drive the 
development of wind farms and allow China to meet the targets of carbon peaking 
and carbon neutrality as we enter the era of offshore parity.

Incorporating Shanghai Electric's 10 years of experience with offshore 
platforms, the Poseidon platform is known for its advanced blade design, 
reliable paddle and yaw system, efficient and low energy consumption cooling 
system, as well as optimal electrical system. The company's proven production, 
transportation and maintenance solutions also provide a solid foundation for 
the reliability of the platform. With the highly integrated new-generation 
semi-direct drive chain technology from Shanghai Electric, the platform 
delivers a significant reduction in kilowatt-hour costs across the whole life 
cycle of wind farms. 

The system uses 100-meter carbon fiber blades, leverages intelligent Sensor 
Roller technology and manages the digital design, production and O&M across the 
whole life cycle. With the company's latest LeapX control system, the EW8.X-230 
reduces the operating load of the whole system while establishing an 
intelligent interconnection with Shanghai Electric's Fengyun system to 
continuously improve utilization rate and customer yield. 

Based on an average annual wind speed of 7.5 meters per second, the system can 
generate 28 million kWh annually, meeting the annual electricity demand of 
14,500 households while reducing coal consumption by nearly 10,000 tons and 
carbon dioxide emissions by 24,000 tons.
