Recently, Pinghu has ushered in an amazing event in municipal development. Zhejiang Energy Jiaxing No. 1 offshore wind farm project has been launched in the Dushan Port Economic Development Zone. Relevant leaders of Jiaxing Marine Fisheries Bureau and Municipal Port Authority, and Liu Zhonghua and Zhong Xudong, government leaders form Pinghu have attended the groundbreaking ceremony.
Zhejiang Energy Jiaxing No. 1 Offshore Wind Farm is located in the Pinghu Lake area of Hangzhou Bay. The center of the wind farm is about 20km offshore, about 14.0km long from north to south, 4.3km wide from east to west, and about 48 km2. The total investment of the project is about 5.582 billion RMB. The total tax revenue during the operation period is about 2.3 billion RMB. The planned installed capacity of the wind farm is 300MW. It is planned to install 75 sets of 4.0MW offshore wind turbines. After the completion of the project, it can generate 74.495 million kWh of renewable energy every year, saving 230,000 tons of standard coal per year and reducing greenhouse gas emissions of 510,000 tons of carbon dioxide. The environmental benefits are very significant. The construction of the project is of great significance to alleviating local energy and environmental pressures, optimizing industrial structure, promoting industrial upgrading, accelerating regional economic development, and maintaining sustainable social development.
In recent years, the city has fully utilized the advantages of location transportation and port shoreline facing Shanghai and facing the sea, and has seized the major opportunities such as the construction of the “Dawan District” and the approval of port opening in the province. We are committed to the development of new materials and new energy, port equipment manufacturing and modern port logistics, and have gathered quite a lot of large enterprises and large projects with core competitiveness. The construction of the port area is constantly making new progress.
While the construction of the Zhejiang Jiaxing 1 offshore wind farm project has commenced, the Huaneng Jiaxing No. 2 offshore wind farm project with a total investment of 5.2 billion RMB is also in full swing and will start soon. In this way, the total capacity of offshore wind power in Pinghu City will reach 600,000 kilowatts, which will become the county-level city with the largest offshore wind power in the province.
