Shanghai Electric Installs LM Wind Power Blades on 4 MW Offshore Turbine

LM Wind Power's first two sets of LM 66.6 blades have been installed on Shanghai Electric Wind Power's 4.0 MW-136 wind turbine in China.

Shanghai Electric's 4 MW platform is designated for Windclass II areas in Shanghai and beyond. LM Wind Power provided onsite support and service to carry out the installation of the blades at the Shanghai Lingang Phase I site.

The installation of the 66.6 m blades on 6 September follows the signing of LM Wind Power's first deal with Shanghai Electric. In the two-year agreement, LM's blade plant in Qinhuangdao will deliver the LM 66.6 blade sets during 2018 and 2019.

"LM Wind Power's proven offshore track record of quality and reliability was decisive in the selection of these long, advanced blades for our 4 MW turbine," Shanghai Electric Wind Power's Sourcing Director, David Chen, says. "This will strengthen our offer to our customers in Windclass II projects."

"This deal is a significant milestone for LM Wind Power to expand in China's growing offshore market," adds LM Wind Power's Vice President, Offshore, Alexis Crama. "We are proud to have earned the trust of Shanghai Electric Wind Power, a reliable and accountable partner that has demonstrated its leadership in the Chinese offshore market. We look forward to supporting Shanghai Electric Wind Power and their customers in the coming years to further develop the offshore market and support China's green energy needs."

LM Wind Power has been present in China since 2001 and currently employs nearly 2,500 people in the country. The company operates three blade manufacturing facilities in Qinhuangdao, Jiangyin and Baodi.
