Wind Energy – Hong Kong
HK Electric reveals plan to build 600-hectare wind farm, consisting of between 13 and 19 wind turbines, about 4km southwest off Lamma Island.
The wind farm would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 284,000 tonnes annually, equal to the yearly carbon absorption of about 6,000 trees.
Hong Kong could get its first offshore wind farm in 2027, with the aim of providing carbon-free electricity to up to 120,000 families, after a power company won approval for the use of next-generation turbine technology for the project.
HK Electric plans to incorporate the wind farm project into its next five-year development plan between 2024 and 2028. It is expected to be tendered for construction in 2024 and completed in 2027, according to the firm.
