Hitachi Energy will supply its WindSTAR transformers and high-voltage hybrid switchgear Plug and Switch System (PASS) to China’s Tuci offshore wind power project.
Developed by China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN), the offshore wind power project is located in the sea area off the northeast coast of Xiangshan, Ningbo city in Zhejiang province. Targeting an installed capacity of 280MW, the farm will have 35 wind turbines, each with an 8MW capacity, and transmit power to shore with a 66 kV submarine cable connected to the onshore booster station which will integrate renewable energy into the grid. The 66 kV WindSTAR power transformers and 72.5 kV high-voltage hybrid switchgears PASS M00-Wind will be installed in each turbine, both part of Hitachi Energy’s OceaniQ portfolio for offshore applications.
