  Last year, it started to build the first offshore wind plant within the border of the United States, the distance between the Block Island wind power plant with 30MW of generating capacity and the Block Island coast of the American Rode lsland is about 3 miles (4.8 kilometers). General Electric (GE) is responsible for the construction of wind power plant belonging to American offshore wind power development company, it is equipped with 5 sets of 6MW “Haliade” turbine, such deep-water wind turbine generates electricity via using direct-drive permanent-magnet generator.

  General Electric expresses that “Haliade” turbine is one of the world largest deep-water wind turbines, its blade diameter is up to 150m, twice of the wingspan of a 747 Boeing passenger plane. If the height of its base is counted, the total height of the deep-water wind turbine is up to 170m.

  It is estimated that the Block Island wind power plant will generate about 125,000MW electric power per year, which is enough to supply electricity demand of 5000 households, and meets about 90% of electricity demand of the Block Island once it is put into operation. It is expected to complete the whole construction of the Block Island wind power plant at the end of this year. It is estimated that service life of turbine is 25 years, for the mean time, 21000t carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced in the Block Island wind power plant.
