On April 17, 2021, Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore Engineering Co., Ltd., Huadian Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. (HHI), and Boqiang Heavy Industry Group Co. Ltd. (BHI), held a signing ceremony for the “3060 Series Offshore Wind turbine installation vessel (3060 WTIV Plan)” project in Yantai, officially launching the development plan for the “high-end, efficient, low-cost” Offshore Wind turbine Installation Vessel series.
Construction of the first in a series of next-generation offshore wind farm installation vessels capable of handling turbines up to 20MW. It features 120-metre-long legs making it able to work in water depths down to 65 meters. The first product is scheduled to be delivered in the first quarter of 2023.
As one of China’s important clean energy sources, the offshore wind power industry has a major impact on the achievement of the 3060 target. The large-scale development of offshore wind power will inevitably reduce carbon emissions and is the only way to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality. During this time, China’s offshore wind grid parity era will officially begin. China’s offshore wind power industry is currently earning opportunities.
The ceremony is held with the participation of CIMC Raffles, Huadian Heavy Industries, and Boqiang Heavy Industries, and other offshore wind power parties contributing to the overall successful project.
