  • It has specified project construction sites as Binzhou, Dongying, Weifang, Yantai, Weihai, Qingdao and nearby areas

Chinese province of Shandong has launched a tender to build 10 pile-based fixed offshore solar PV plants with a total installed capacity of 11.25 GW, as part of its plans to rationally develop and utilize offshore PV resources here, it stated.

As per the call issued by Shandong Provincial Energy Administration, the broad scope of work involves completion of the project and grid connection within stipulated time frame. Project construction sites are identified as Binzhou, Dongying, Weifang, Yantai, Weihai, Qingdao and nearby areas.

All of 11.25 GW capacity is spread out between 2022 and 2025 for various provinces. Details here.

“In 2022, the pile-based fixed offshore photovoltaic projects in Shandong Province will be allocated through market competition, choosing strong comprehensive strength and investment,” states the agency. “Enterprises with excellent models, advanced equipment, good technical solutions, reasonable construction periods, and good industrial driving effects will be the development owners. Companies that meet the requirements are welcome to apply.”

Launched on May 12, 2022, the tender call specifies submission deadline as between May 31, 2022 to June 1, 2022.

Reflecting on its sheer size, Bloomberg said it is enough to power New Zealand. It added that the projects will be located in shallow waters close to the shore and attached to fixed foundations on the seabed, unlike floating solar panels.
