The EDF Group and China Energy Investment Corporation (CEI) have commissioned the 200MW Dongtai 5 offshore wind farm off China.

The project is located in the China Sea, off the Jiangsu coast, north of Shanghai, and took 20 months to construct.

Together with the 300MW Dongtai 4 wind farm commissioned in December 2019, the JV now operates 500MW in offshore wind capacity in China.

The Dongtai 4 and 5 comprise 125 turbines which will generate electricity covering the annual needs of 2 million local inhabitants.

The joint venture between CEI (62.5%) and the EDF Group (37.5%) operates both projects.

EDF Renewables chair and chief executive Bruno Bensasson said: “The EDF Group is delighted to strengthen its historical positions in China through the completion of the Dongtai offshore wind project together with our Chinese partner, CEI.
