China's first 2,000-ton offshore wind power installation platform was delivered for use in the Nansha district of Guangzhou, Guangdong province, on Wednesday. It will help make a deeper exploration of offshore wind power potential for the country in the months to come.

The platform, named Baihetan, is the first offshore wind power installation platform that meets the functional standards of the fourth generation of offshore wind equipment in China and the requirements of integrated construction operations, including self-lifting and self-navigation in deep waters, according to a statement released by China State Shipbuilding Corp Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding, the company that built it for China Three Gorges Corp.

Baihetan stands on four legs that are up to 120 meters long — equivalent to a 40-story building, the statement said.
