Introduction 简介

HK Electric is proposing to build an offshore wind farm in Hong Kong near Lamma Island. The proposed wind farm will be located at a 600-hectare site about 3.5km southwest of Lamma Island featuring up to 33 wind turbines, each being 3 to 3.6MW. The total generating capacity of around 100MW is expected to produce 175 million units of electricity per year, adequate for the consumption of about 50,000 4-person households in Hong Kong. This is equivalent to around 1.5% of the Company’s annual electricity output.

The project’s Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report was approved by Environmental Protection Department on 14 May 2010 and the Environmental Permit was granted on 8 June 2010.

HK Electric has set up a wind monitoring station in March 2012 within the proposed wind farm site to pursue a meteorological and oceanographic data collection campaign. The station adopts Light Detection & Ranging (LiDAR) technology for wind monitoring. The first year wind monitoring campaign has completed in end February 2013. Analysis of the wind resource indicates that the site is feasible for development of an offshore wind farm. The wind monitoring campaign is still ongoing aiming at collecting additional data for optimizing the offshore wind farm design.

This website aims to provide information on the project background, EIA study, EM&A information and the relevant documents of the Stakeholder Liaison Group set up particularly for the project. HK Electric will continue to engage key stakeholders in the process and we welcome any feedback or suggestions from the community at large.

港灯正计划在香港境内近南丫岛发展一个離岸风力发电场。拟建的離岸风场选址于距离南丫岛西南约三点五公里的水域,占地六百公顷,发电量约达一百兆瓦。计划安装的风力发电机组不多于三十三台,每台机组容量为三至三点六兆瓦,预计每年产电一亿七千五百万度,约足够五万个四人家庭全年使用。风场产电量占港灯年总发电量约百分之一点五。

环境保护署已于二零一零年五月十四日批准通过離岸风场的环评报告,并于二零一零年六月八日发出环境许可证。

港灯于二零一二年三月在离岸风场选址的海面设立测风站并展开实地风力及海浪数据收集工作。测风站采用「激光雷达」技术量度现场的风力资源。首年的测风工作已于二零一三年二月底完成。数据分析确认选址有足够的风力资源用作发展离岸风场。现时测风站仍然继续运作,以收集更多风力數据作持续优化风场设计之用。

这网站旨在提供有关離岸风场项目的背景资料和环评研究的内容,并载列环境监察及审核资料,以及为该项目成立的持份者联络小组的相关文件。我们会继续与各持份者保持沟通,欢迎社会各界就港灯離岸风场项目提出宝贵意见。
