China's first 6-megawatt wind turbine made public

China's first six-megawatt wind turbine unit made its commercial debut in Yancheng, Jiangsu Province. Sinovel Wind Group Co., Ltd., maker of the turbine, said the unit was indigenously developed and has the largest single-machine capacity in China at the current time.

Public files provided by an independent authority show this is the first 6-megawatt wind turbine in the world that has been put into commercial use.

Sinovel's new wind turbine unit has wide applications in generating power on the land, ocean and in the intertidal zone. The length of the turbine's paddle wheels reaches 128 meters, which helps to capture stronger wind force and increase energy efficiency. The turbine even could work normally in the extreme cold and set a record of 62.5 meters per second in the speed test.
