China announces new offshore wind project

South China's Guangdong province plans to build the nation's largest offshore wind farm, agencies reported on Tuesday, to meet the country's rapidly growing energy demand.

The facility will have a sea area of about 240 square kilometers, the report said, and includes a 1,250 megawatt wind farm.

The facility is expected to "relieve the energy pressure and optimise the energy structure" in the province, the report said, citing local
government officials.
