Sinovel Wind Group Company, the largest wind power generator manufacturer in China, officially announced on Oct. 13 that they have completed production of an independently-developed 5-megawatt wind turbine has independently-owned intellectual property rights.

This is China's first 5-megawatt wind turbine. In addition, the research and development of a 6-megawatt wind power generator is progressing smoothly, and production will begin in the first half of 2011.

With the development of China's wind power industry — especially the launch of offshore wind power concession projects — it is inevitable that wind-power generators capable of producing 3 megawatts or more will become the standard nationwide. The development of 5 megawatt and above wind turbines are also a high-level manufacturing field in the world.

An official at Sinovel said that with the development of large wind turbines in China and the world, more efficient and more powerful units capable of producing 5 megawatts or more will certainly become the mainstream of the next generation and are widely used in land, on sea and in the intertidal zones as well as in different wind fields. Following the production of the 5-megawatt generators, Sinovel will continue to research and develop the wind turbines with even higher power.

Tao Gang, vice general manager of Sinovel, said that at the invitation to bid for offshore wind power projects involving 1 million kilowatts of power held by the National Energy Bureau, Sinovel won 60 percent of the share, including two coastal wind power projects in Binhai and Sheyang counties in Jiangsu Province, totaling 600,000 kilowatts.
