It can stay on the sea surface while slowly inserting its four legs into the seabed, passing through mud to reach the hard layer. It then lifts the platform above the sea surface to allow the offshore wind power equipment to be assembled on the platform, greatly reducing the difficulty of offshore wind power equipment installation, the statement said.

Baihetan is 126 meters long and 50 meters wide. It is designed to operate in water depths of 70 meters. The lifting capacity of the main crane is 2,000 metric tons, while the auxiliary crane can lift 200 metric tons.

The platform, with its 4,200-square-meter deck area, has a maximum load of 6,500 metric tons. It is the flag equipment for the development of wind operations in deep water, the statement said.

Baihetan will be used in the waters of Fujian and Guangdong provinces in the coming months, it said.
