Warm congratulations on the smooth delivery of the "West China 1600" self elevating offshore wind power installation platform
The latest generation of self elevating offshore wind power installation platform in China, "Huaxi 1600" 1600 ton self elevating offshore wind power installation platform, invested and constructed by Huaxi Offshore Engineering, was successfully delivered in Qingdao. Various participating parties, business cooperation units, and multiple news media units participated in the delivery ceremony.
Huaxi Offshore actively responded to the national call for the development of offshore wind power during the 14th Five Year Plan period and invested in the construction of a Huaxi 1600T self elevating wind power installation platform ship (named "Huaxi 1600") on June 30, 2022. This platform is designed by the 708th Research Institute of China Shipbuilding Corporation Limited, undertaken by China Shipbuilding Wuhan Shipbuilding Machinery Corporation, and jointly built by Jiangsu Dajin Heavy Industry, Shanghai CRRC Hange, and China Shipbuilding Anqing. It is classified into China Classification Society.
Huaxi 1600 is a self-propelled and self elevating wind power installation platform independently developed and designed by China, with fully independent intellectual property rights. It has a high degree of informatization and automation, a high localization rate of equipment, good safety for far-reaching offshore construction operations, and fully considers the economy of operation and the convenience of construction work. It is a representative work of the fourth generation wind power installation platform that meets the requirements of far-reaching offshore wind farms and the installation of the new generation of large MW offshore wind turbines. Gao Ming, Chairman of Huaxi Offshore Engineering, expressed gratitude on behalf of Huaxi Offshore Engineering for their support to relevant units. He pointed out that Huaxi Offshore Engineering will take the "Huaxi 1600" as a new opportunity to continue cultivating the marine industry market, promote the continuous advancement of offshore wind power industry towards the deep sea, and contribute to the realization of the national "carbon peak" and "carbon neutrality" goals and the construction of offshore wind power facilities.
The smooth delivery of the "Huaxi 1600" platform this time is inseparable from the hard work and hard work of all participating parties. It gathers advantageous resources from all parties and carries the earnest expectations of all parties. It is of great significance for promoting the clean energy utilization of offshore wind power in China and helping to achieve the "dual carbon" goal.
