Mingyang Smart Energy (MYSE) has won a contract in China for its 11 MW platform with Guangdong Electric Power Development (Yuedian). The combined 1 GW order concerns its MySE 11-230 offshore wind turbines.

The MySE 11-230 typhoon-proof hybrid-drive, which was launched in July 2020, features a 203-metre diameter rotor with an 11 MW rated output.

Turbines will be supplied for the 600 MW
Qingzhou 1 and 400 MW Qingzhou 2 sites in deep sea zones in Guangdong Province. The two projects are scheduled to be commissioned by 2023. Once fully operational, the wind farms are expected to provide 3.6 billion kWh of power, save 1.05 million tons of coal consumption and reduce 2.78 million tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Last year, MYSE unveiled a new turbine model, with a nameplate capacity of 16 MW. With a 242-metre diameter rotor, the turbine is Designed for high-wind IEC IB including typhoon-class IEC TC and features 118-metre-long blades, and a 46,000 m2 swept area equivalent of more than six fields.

According to MYSE, a single 16.0-242 turbine can generate 80,000 MWh of electricity every year, enough to power more than 20,000 households. In comparison, it produces 45% more energy than its previous turbine model, the MySE 11.0-203.

It is scheduled for full prototype roll-out in 2022, to be followed by prototype installation in the first half of 2023 and commercial production in the first half of 2024.
