Hong Kong Electric (HK Electric) plans to develop an offshore wind farm southwest of Lamma Island, Hong Kong. Application for variation of an environmental permit for the proposed project has been approved by the Environmental Protection Department.
With this environmental permit the wind farm project will be included in HK Electric's next Five-year Development Plan ( 2024 - 2028 ) and submitted for Government approval. The proposed wind farm, covering an area of about 600 hectares, is located about four kilometres away from Lamma Power Station and will have a capacity of around 150 MW. Depending on the capacity of the wind turbine model to be selected, about 13 to 19 wind turbines, each of eight to 12 MW, will be built. The overall upper tip height of the wind turbines will be between 198 and 271 metres above mean sea level.
