China’s first 3MW wind turbine gearbox, developed by Dalian Huarui and Romax Technology, has successfully passed stringent nacelle testing and is currently being installed, as part of the Sinovel 3MW turbine, in China’s first offshore wind farm off the coast of Shanghai.
Testing for the gearbox was completed in February and it passed all required nacelle tests to prove its suitability for use in the Sinovel 3MW turbine. Following testing, the gearbox which was designed by Romax and manufactured by Dalian Huarui Co. Ltd, is now being installed in China’s first offshore wind farm, Shanghai East Sea Wind farm. The wind farm, operated by Shanghai East Sea Electric Limited and a key national renewable energy project, will use 34 units of the Sinovel 3MW wind turbines.
