– Shanghai Electric’s EW8.X-230 recognized as one of Wind Power Monthly’s Top 10 Offshore Turbines for 2022

SHANGHAI, Feb. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Shanghai Electric has announced that the company’s EW8.X-230 wind turbine has been named one of the Top 10 Offshore Turbines for 2022, according to the latest report by Wind Power Monthly, a world leading publication covering the wind industry. The award comes after Shanghai Electric’s EW8.X-230 wind turbine, the company’s next-generation offshore turbine based on the Poseidon platform, was recognized as one of the most innovative products by China’s top 50 turbine manufacturers. in September 2022.

Developed by Shanghai Electric Wind Power Group Co., Ltd., the EW8.5-230 is the company’s latest semi-direct drive wind turbine for China’s coastal areas with medium and low wind speeds. The generator is equipped with 100-meter carbon fiber blades and intelligent Sensor Roller technology, and adopts design, production, and O

Designed to operate with high reliability and stability in low wind speed conditions, the generator is a highly cost effective solution for wind power. With its cutting-edge technology and advanced design, the EW8.X-230 is set to set a new standard in the offshore wind industry, and will go a long way toward helping China achieve carbon neutrality goals in its efforts. to achieve parity on the high seas.

The generator achieves higher performance while maintaining exceptional reliability, thanks to its highly integrated new generation semi-direct drive chain technology. In addition, Shanghai Electric’s years of innovation and technological advances for the entire unit and major components have enabled the company to offer a solution that significantly reduces kilowatt-hour costs throughout the life cycle of wind farms.

With a rotor diameter reaching 230 meters, EW8.X-230 boasts the largest rotor diameter among installed turbine models and has a swept area equivalent to the size of 5.8 standard football fields. Its larger size allows for a significant increase in power output. Based on an average annual wind speed of 7.5 meters per second, the turbine is capable of generating 28 million kWh per year, meeting the annual electricity demand of some 14,500 homes while reducing coal consumption. by almost 10,000 tons and carbon dioxide emissions by 24,000 tons.

So far, forty-seven EW8.5-230 semi-direct drive wind turbines have been connected to the grid in east China’s Shandong province. With a duration of 121 days, the project has broken the world record for the shortest construction period for a wind farm of more than 399.5 MW. It has been rated as the first offshore parity wind project of Shandong’s “14th Five-Year Plan” and one of the key projects under the supervision of the provincial government. It is also a wind farm that has commercial turbines with the largest rotor diameter in the world.
