The offshore wind farm will involve investments of around 20 billion yuan, have an installed capacity of 1.25 million kilowatts and cover a sea area of 240 square kilometers.
After its completion, it will become China's largest offshore wind farm and demonstration base.

Located along the coastal area of Shanwei city, eastern Guangdong, Lufeng offshore wind farm is subtropical marine monsoon climate. The steady wind speed and direction here can produce good wind resources.
