Shaba offshore wind farm, the nation’s first million-kilowatt offshore wind farm, was connected to the power grid at full capacity and started generating electricity on Saturday.
Invested and constructed by China Three Gorges New Energy (Group) Co., Ltd, the Shaba Project has a total installed capacity of 1.7 million kilowatts.
It can generate about 4.7 billion kWh of electricity annually, which is enough to power about 2 million households in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 4 million tons per year.
