Ocean Sun and Sunneng has completed floater construction and started sea trials of a 0,5 MW offshore pilot connected to a wind turbine in Haiyang, Shandong province.
The project is funded by State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC), a Chinese state-owned power plant investor and the world’s largest PV asset owner. The project is Ocean Sun’s first truly offshore installation, and the world’s first offshore wind and solar hybrid project utilizing SPIC’s existing power infrastructure.
Successful execution of the present project will make Ocean Sun a strong contender for future wind and solar hybrid systems. The Haiyang pilot with SPIC has a significant upside, because the remaining wind turbines at the site can also be connected to floaters, creating an opportunity for a 20 MWp installation in 2023. This is one of several SPIC-owned wind power plants in the area.
Date of commissioning: End of October 2022
