Introduction 简介

HK Electric is proposing to build an Offshore Wind Farm in Hong Kong near Lamma Island. The proposed project will be located at a 600-hectare site about 4 km southwest of Lamma Power Station featuring 13 to 19 wind turbines, each being 8 to 12 MW. The total generating capacity of around 150 MW is expected to produce around 400 million units of electricity per year, adequate for annual consumption of about 120,000 households in Hong Kong (based on 275 units a month). This is equivalent to around 4% of the Company's annual electricity output.

The project's Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report was approved by the Environmental Protection Department on 14 May 2010 and the Environmental Permit was granted on 8 June 2010. The Application for Variation of Environmental Permit (VEP) was also approved on 5 May 2022.

HK Electric had been collecting wind data in the selected site for many years.  According to findings by independent consultant after reviewing the recent data, the selected site has sufficient wind resources with an average wind speed of about 7.1 metres per second, which is higher than the average wind speed recorded by the HK Observatory at the Waglan Island Meteorological Monitoring Station. This makes the selected site an ideal location for wind farm development. 

This website aims to provide information on the project background, EIA study, EM&A information and relevant documents of the Stakeholder Liaison Group set up particularly for the project. HK Electric will continue to engage major 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附近发展一个離岸风力发电场项目。拟建的離岸风场选址于距离南丫发电厂约四公里的水域,占地600公顷,发电量约150兆瓦。计划安装的风力发电机组约13至19台,每台机组容量为8至12兆瓦,预计每年产电约4亿度,约足够12万户家庭全年使用(以每月每户用电量275度电计算)。风场产电量占港灯年总发电量约4%。

环境保护署已于2010年5月14日批准通过離岸风场的环评报告,并于2010年6月8日发出环境许可证。更改环境许可证的申请亦于2022年5月5日批出。

港灯在风场选址收集风力数据多年。根据独立顾问检视近年风力數据,选址平均风速约为每秒7.1米,拥有足够风资源,风力亦较天文台于横栏岛气象监测站所录得的平均风力为高,属发展离岸风场的理想地点。

本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,以及为本项目成立的持份者联络小组的相关文件。我们将继续与各主要持份者保持沟通,同时欢迎社会各界就港灯離岸风场项目提出意见。
