Chinese firm develops 75-metre blade

CHINA: Zhongfu Lianzhong, a leading Chinese wind blade producer based in east China's Lianyungang city, is developing 75-metre wind blades and expecting to complete the development by the end of this year.

Qiao Guanghui, general manager of the company, says the blades, equalling the 75-metre B75 blade launched last year by Siemens, will be used in 6MW offshore turbines.

In October last year, Zhongfu Lianzhong produced a 62-metre blade for 6MW turbines. It is testing the blades in simulated severe storms in its test center.

Zhongfu Lianzhong is the only company in China capable of producing offshore wind blades in bulk.
