MingYang ships off China’s first floating offshore wind turbine

The prototype was assembled at MingYang's Yangjiang manufacturing facility. 

Chinese wind turbine manufacturer MingYang Smart Energy has launched the first ever Chinese-made floating wind turbine project in the South China Sea.

According to MingYang, the floating offshore wind turbine is a MySE5.5MW typhoon-resistant floating wind turbine. 

The China-based firm said that the wind turbine comes with MingYang’s advanced floater movement control strategy, enabling the floating turbine to adapt to the complex environment of wind, wave and current in the South China Sea.

“Over the last decade, MingYang has shown an unmatched commitment towards offshore wind, bringing our expertise and innovative solutions to the market. The first floating wind project in China will pave the way for more wind farms both in shallow water and deep water,” the company said.
