A Chinese wind turbine is built with the potential to be called the largest in the world

A few days ago we reported that the world’s largest offshore wind turbine has started operating, and today we learned about a competitor to it. Currently, the Chinese wind turbine MySE 16.0-242 is being built, which exceeds the energy potential of the 14-megawatt Haliade-X 14 from GE.

The Chinese MySE 16.0-24 wind turbine is, on paper, the last largest project of its kind

MingYang Smart Energy, based in Zhongshan, China, is currently building its largest offshore wind turbine yet, MySE 16.0-242. When this 242-meter colossus is launched, it will be able to generate the entire 16 megawatts of power, providing access to green, free energy for as many as 20,000 households over 25 years of operation. This will eliminate over 1.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.

A single MySE 16.0-242 turbine will generate 80,000 MWh of electricity per year, 45% more than its predecessor, MingYang MySE 11.0-203. No wonder, because when it starts operating, its three 118-meter-long blades will cover an area of ​​46,000 square meters.

However, before this happens, some time will pass, because the prototype is to start operating in 2022, the installation on site is to take place in the first half of 2023, and the most important stage of commercial production in the first half of 2024. However, we can be sure that this is just the beginning of the expansion of wind turbines. We will probably keep you informed about even larger projects for a long time, because the bigger the wind turbine is, the more energy it generates, so its cost in relation to energy drops significantly.
