This is considered to be the largest worldwide.

State-owned power generator manufacturer Dongfang Electric Corporation announced it has successfully installed an 18-megawatt semi-direct drive offshore wind turbine.

With a 260-m rotor diameter, the turbine has a swept area of 53,000 square metres. This is equivalent to 7.4 standard football fields.
