Goldwind 6MW installed in China

Goldwind has installed a prototype of its 6MW offshore wind turbine, the Chinese wind group confirmed.

The direct-drive machine is in place at a facility in the coastal city of Dafeng, Jiangsu province.

A spokesman said: "We have completed the assembly of our 6MW prototype wind turbine and are continuing with testing. The testing phase is progressing as planned."

Goldwind is also looking at development of a 10MW machine, as China’s wind manufacturers aim to stay in touch with development of super-sized turbines by foreign producers.
