The offshore wind industry is ramping up in China with at least 11.9GW in the development pipeline and an invitation for offshore wind project tendering on 18 May 2010. This study provides wind speed and energy density maps along with estimates of the wind energy technical potential - 11,000TWh within 100km of the Chinese coast. The wind resource analysis seeks to improve upon previous studies by estimating the wind energy generation potential for offshore wind power in China in order to assist the identification of key wind resource areas for China‟s offshore wind development.

 

Azure provided advisory and management services for this study published by WWF Norway in collaboration with China Wind Energy Association and Sun Yat-sen University. Please contact Rachel Enslow (This email address is being protected from spambots.

China: an Emerging Offshore Wind Development Hotspot: Download

To unleash China’s full potential and speed up the development of offshore wind energy production, bridges must to be constructed between stakeholders with the relevant experience and the best available technology (typically in Northern Europe), and policy makers and project developers in China.

This study looks at Norway and China from such a perspective, aiming to outline the emerging offshore wind market in China, assess the strengths and compatibility of the Norwegian offshore industry cluster, and suggest possible ways for future cooperation. This study was primarily funded by WWF Norway.

The Chinese wind equipment supply chain is now firmly in place, forming a strategic low cost global manufacturing hub. Azure is here to help you assess and manage the benefits and risks you will encounter in making Chinese equipment and components integral to your business strategy.

 Wind turbine procurement--map

Our technical team has performed client specific technical due diligence assignments including technology and production process reviews of leading domestic WTG manufacturers in support of turbine selection by international project developers. Work has included numerous inspection visits of component manufacturing facilities, turbine assembling factories and on-site operating turbines in China. Through extensive experience working with local turbine manufactures, Azure has acquired an excellent understanding of the risks and advantages associated with purchasing wind turbine technology in China.

Beyond assessment of OEMs, Azure provides procurement management support, enabling developers within and outside of China to purchase Chinese wind equipment by managing the procurement process and being available on site for scheduled factory visits and QAQC inspections.  

Azure has also worked with various developers investing in the Chinese wind sector by assigning members of the team as dedicated technical staff for their projects. Such support covers execution of all technical and development work required by wind project development, including site selection, securing development and land use rights, installing met masts, collecting and analyzing wind data, contracting local design institutes for compiling project feasibility study, environmental impact assessment and other approval documents, reviewing results of design institutes, performing financial modeling of the wind farm and communicating results to directors and partners, securing wind project permits, selecting turbine technology, managing procurement etc….

Azure has been directly involved in permitting work for projects in China and abroad and has performed flash assessments and complete due diligence of more than 30 wind projects. Azure has worked on projects in the Chinese provinces of Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang, Shandong, Gansu, Xinjiang and Hainan on behalf of international investors as well as in North America, Europe and North Africa for Chinese clients. This broad experience has allowed the engineering team to gain a strong capability to identify good projects but also to become extremely familiar with the different investment decision processes and criteria within international and Chinese corporations.
