Huaneng Cangnan No.2 Offshore Wind Farm
The Huaneng Cangnan 2 offshore wind farm site is located in the eastern sea area of Cangnan County, Zhejiang Province. The planned project capacity is 300MW, with a planned area of approximately 44.2km2. A total of 36 8.5MW wind turbines are arranged, with the longest wind turbine foundation pile length of 120 meters and weight of 2350 tons, making it the longest single pile currently under construction in China. Due to the influence of natural factors such as ocean currents, as well as geological conditions such as the thickness of the seabed mud layer in the wind farm, the risk of pile sinking in the project is high, and the overall construction difficulty is relatively high.
Huaxi Offshore Engineering is responsible for the installation of auxiliary structures such as wind turbine foundation steel pipe piles, re driving, UT testing, cage and inner platform, as well as the construction of booster stations for the 36 wind turbine units of the project.
Faced with the difficulties of on-site sea conditions and harsh weather, while adhering to safety production, all personnel of the Cangnan project ship team of the "West China 5000" faced difficulties and overcame them. They continuously summarized and calculated repeatedly, fully utilized external conditions such as sea tide patterns, and smoothly promoted construction. On June 7, 2023, they successfully completed the construction of a total of 36 single pile foundations, including the longest single pile under construction in China, and one booster station.
The wind rises at the end of the green duckweed, and the waves form between the gentle waves. The smooth implementation of this project signifies that our company's project team has excellent professional skills, the performance of the West China 5000 ship system is safe and reliable, and the operation team's tacit cooperation has once again been tested in practice. Of course, this cannot be separated from the strong assistance of the owner, China Huaneng, and the general contractor, China Railway Bridge Bureau. Born into the sea, thriving from the sea. In the future, the West China Sea Engineering will be able to cleave and chop waves, travel steadily and move towards wider waters.
