ChinaAfter nearly a year of construction, the Wudongde wind power infrastructure transport and installation ship was delivered in Jiangsu province on May 25.
The ship was started by China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG) at a factory in Haimen district, Jiangsu province on July 6, 2021 and completed on May 25, 2022. It is 182 m long, 46 m wide and 15 m deep.
It is China’s first high-performance deep-sea vessel, designed to specialize in the transportation and installation of wind power infrastructure. According to CTG, it can install turbines in water tens of meters deep.
Wudongde is equipped with a full-revolving variable crane with a fixed maximum lifting capacity of 3,000 tons. Lifting height from deck up to 130 m. The vehicle is also equipped with the DP2 dynamic positioning system.
Wudongde is one of two wind power infrastructure installation ships developed by CTG at the same time. The other vehicle, named Baihetan, was launched last month in Guangzhou city, Guangdong province, southern China.
Baihetan is smaller in size, only 126 m long and has a maximum lifting capacity of 2,000 tons. It is used to install turbines from 8 to 15 MW and can operate in water up to 70 m deep.
