The Jiangsu Rudong Offshore Wind Power Plant has gone online in the East China Sea.

The 50 MW wind farm marked the first offshore wind power order outside Europe for Siemens, which installed 21 of its SWT-2.3-101 turbines.

The project is operated by Jiangsu Longyuan Offshore Wind Power, a subsidiary of China Longyuan Power Group.

Siemens’ contract also includes a five-year service and maintenance agreement.
