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.
