By using strategies that preemptively optimized processes through stimulations, the feat not only reduced construction costs but also served as a “vital breakthrough” for scaling up offshore wind potential in future projects, said Goldwind.

Goldwind’s GWH252-16MW model has 123-meter-long blades and a rotor diameter of 252 meters. With a swept area of around 50,000 square meters, one such wind turbine is capable of generating 34.2 kWh of electricity per single revolution.

A few months ago, Goldwind’s GWH252-16MW wind turbine, installed at the Zhangpu Liuao offshore wind farm owned and developed by China Three Gorges, produced 384.1 megawatt-hours in a 24-hour period, setting a new world record for an individual wind turbine in the given period.

The record was achieved while the wind farm was experiencing wind speeds of up to 23.56 meters per second (around 85 kilometers per hour) due to typhoon ‘Haiku’, according to China Three Gorges.
