The third phase of training courses provided by GL Garrad Hassan to the Guangdong Electrical Design Institute (GEDI) has been successfully completed. GL says the training courses have aided GEDI in its talent development and technology accumulation.

Garrad Hassan will continue to support GEDI to a larger extent in the follow-up wind power projects off the coast of Guangdong Province, China.

The company has signed a contract with GEDI for extensive design support for offshore wind turbine foundations and evaluation of their suitability for various offshore wind projects. The renewable energy consultancy will provide technology support, design advice and review, and technical seminars and will issue technical review reports for each GEDI project.

GL says GEDI is the survey designer of the first offshore wind power project in Guangdong. According to GL, the province has an abundant offshore wind resource, with the implementation of the 12th Five-Year plan calling for the construction of 3 GW- to 4 GW-scale wind farms over the next few years.
