The just-concluded 18th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party explicitly called for the implementation of a strategy based on establishing a culture focused on conservation. The move restored confidence in the offshore wind power and the green energy industries, two sectors still in their primary stages, and, at the same time, vastly brightened the outlook for three exhibitions coming up at the Shanghai New International Expo Center and the Shangri-La Kerry Hotel Pudong in Shanghai on 4-6 June 2014 – the Offshore Wind China Conference & Exhibition, the Wind Farm O&M China Conference & Exhibition and Distributed Generation China. As organizers, the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association, the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Committee, the China National Renewable Energy Centre and Shanghai International Exhibition Co., Ltd. will be focusing on seven initiatives at the events:
1. Providing an opportunity to acknowledge the recovery across the wind power sector through presentations on the latest progress of offshore projects
At this series of events, offshore wind power developers along with planning and design organizations have been invited to give presentations on the progress of offshore wind power projects, and to engage in lively discussions concerning the industry’s Chinese development model.
2. Offering an opportunity to understand the latest trends in the industry by bringing together the leading wind turbine manufacturers
The series of events will assemble the key manufacturers of complete offshore wind turbines under one roof, including mainstream players such as Vestas / Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Goldwind, Gamesa, United Power, Sinovel, Shanghai Electric / Siemens and Ming Yang, among others. They will bring the latest offshore wind power technologies.
3. Capturing future opportunities in the industry and exploring the wind power services market
The series of events features the Wind Power Services Market program, which will explore management of the lifecycles of onshore and offshore wind power projects and related services, including wind farm operation and maintenance technologies and equipment, fund management and value-added services.
4. Providing complete solutions with a focus on offshore installations
With a focus on offshore installations, leading offshore installation companies including CCCC Third Harbor Engineering, Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries, Jiangsu Longyuan Zhenhua Marine Engineering, CCCC First Harbor Engineering, CCCC Fourth Harbor Engineering and JiangSu Daoda Marine Heavy Industry will gather at this event series to showcase a variety of installation equipment and methods, analyze cases and share experiences.
5. Joining hands with the leading wind power nations to share in their advanced experience
Event attendees will meet with associations and delegations from developed countries including the U.K., the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and the U.S. to engage in active exchanges with foreign firms, and share the latest product technologies, project experience and operation concepts.
6. Improving the trade mechanism by expanding on-site communications and negotiations
The series of events will further enhance the trade mechanism, while, at the same time, act as the continuation of the “On-Site Complete Machine and Parts Manufacturers Trade Fair.” Heads of procurement from leading wind turbine manufacturers will engage in face-to-face talks with overseas parts manufacturers.
7. Providing the opportunity to witness super offshore projects up close by visiting offshore projects under construction
Exhibitors and attendees will have the opportunity to visit the Phase II of the East Sea Bridge Wind Farm that scheduled to start in the spring of 2014, and the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone, the first of its kind in the country.
The series of events remain committed to promoting and contributing to the development of the wind power industry in Shanghai as well as across the whole of China.
