The first phase of Longyuan Power Group's 150-megawatt offshore wind farm in Rudong county, Jiangsu province, the largest of its kind in China, began operations on Dec. 28.

Zhang Gang, a senior executive of the company's Jiangsu branch company, said the wind farm's production costs now stand at around 16,000 yuan per kilowatt, lower than 25,000 yuan per kilowatt to 30,000 yuan per kilowatt in Europe.

According to China's renewable energy plan for the 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-2015), the country will increase its offshore wind power installed capacity to 5 gigawatts by 2015 and 30 gigawatts by 2020.

Its offshore wind power sector will witness accelerated development over the next five years.
