ii.Wind Power Services
With the continuous growth of domestic wind power installed capacity, business opportunities in the service market have arrived. The traditional evaluation indicators based on internal revenues are gradually replaced by levelized cost of energy (LCOE). Goldwind has long established the strategic positioning of being a wind power solution provider and aimed to reduce costs, enhance market competitiveness, and create value for customers. In terms of business layout, it extends vertically to the industry chain, providing customers with services such as pre-tech development consulting, financing services, EPC engineering services, and life-cycle asset management for wind power projects.

Based on the big data platform, Goldwind’s digital wind farm overall solution includes self-developed customizable, intelligent direct-drive WTGs, including New Freemeso, GoldFarm, SOAMTM, EFarm, Power Nest, Resmart and other systems and technologies, which help to improve power generation and equipment reliability, reduce cost, and continuously improve the comprehensive competitiveness of wind energy. During the reporting period, the Smart Wind Farm Operation and Management Platform (SOAM) achieved large-scale commercialization, with new orders exceeding 60 million yuan, an increase of more than 50% year-on-year. User-side integrated energy management system currently has more than 297 customers and 312 sites and has initially established data analysis capabilities such as load forecasting and power diagnosis.

Goldwind together with State Grid Qinghai Electric Power Company and other cooperative organizations jointly set up Qinghai New Energy Big Data Innovation Platform to provide green power for Qinghai Province’s “9- Day Green Power” event. 6 new energy stations will use remote monitoring through the platform. This is a new practice of zero-emission electricity consumption and maximization of clean energy consumption, and is a further exploration of the domestic energy transformation path.

As of the end of the reporting period, the Company’s operation and maintenance service team provided construction, operation and maintenance services and technical support for more than 33,000 units and about 1,000 wind farms worldwide, and approximately 20,000 units were connected to the Goldwind Global Monitoring Center. The domestic and foreign operating wind farm service projects volume is 6,968MW, of which non-Goldwind projects account for 39%, increasing for 70.93% YoY. During the Reporting Period, revenue from the Wind Power Services business segment was RMB1,647.49 million.

iii. Wind Farm Investment and Development
With the continuous improvement of wind curtailment, the Company’s wind farm investment and development business achieved good results during the reporting period. The power transaction volume and power generation revenue continued to increase. The installed capacity of the grid and the projects to be built continued to grow steadily. The number of utilization hours exceeds the industry average.

During the Reporting Period, the Group’s revenue from power generation was RMB3,903.99 million, showing an increase of RMB656.63 million YoY. The market trading volume accounted for 6.9% of the Company’s total electricity production volume

During the reporting period, the Company added 780.90MW of grid-connected capacity in the domestic grid, and added 721.3MW of attributable grid-connected capacity. The capacity of wind farm projects under construction was 2,411.6MW, of which 1,540.04MW was attributable. In 2018, the approved domestic new capacity was 889MW, and the domestically approved yet undeveloped attributable capacity at the end of 2018 was 2,012.21MW. The average utilization of WTGs exceeds 2,200 hours.

In recent years, the scale of the Company’s business has continued to expand, and the volume the wind farm asset management platform manages has continued to increase. At present, the Company manages its own wind farm installed capacity of more than 4.7 million kW. It also actively develops corresponding strategies for the management of existing wind farm assets, relies on the data center and digital platform established by Che company, and uses laser radar, Efarm and other technologies to achieve live monitoring of power curve, asset management efficiency management and profitability enhancement.

With the continuous advancement of the power market reform, the mode of fixed-on-grid power prices has gradually phased out, and the price of power outside the indemnificatory renewable energy purchase has entered the market. In terms of promoting market-oriented power trading, the Company currently has six power-selling companies to ensure the price of electricity through the establishment of power-supply companies in technology and management, and to ensure the price of electricity through the power market. The Company is devoted to managing investment income from a full life cycle perspective in order to maximize the return on investment during the entire life cycle for customers.

iv. Promotion of “Offshore and Overseas” Strategy
Under the guidance of the “two seas” strategy, the overseas and offshore businesses were smoothly boosted in 2018, which played an active and important role in strengthening the Company’s market leading position of the wind power industry and in expanding market share and brand influence. In 2018, in the context of the accelerated development of offshore wind power in China, Goldwind continuously strengthened the construction of offshore wind power technology, engineering and talent teambuilding, providing customers with highreliability WTGs, accurate wind farm resource assessment, intelligent hoisting, and operation and maintenance plan.

Focusing on offshore wind power projects, the Company pursues the optimal electricity cost plan and creates a three-dimensional integrated solution for “offshore wind turbines, offshore engineering, and offshore operation and maintenance”. Among them, GW154-6.7MW and GW171-6.45MW products launched by GW6S platform have successively obtained type certificates and started mass application. On this basis, the GW184-6.45MW, GW168-6.45MW and GW168-8.0MW series units were further upgraded. These products not only take advantage of the technical advantages of Goldwind’s permanent magnet direct-drive (PMDD) technology, but also carry out special adaptation studies on the complex marine environment. This entitles the Company with regional-targeted adaptation models that adapt to various climatic conditions, from low-temperature and low wind speed in the north, low wind speed in the middle intertidal zone, to hightemperature, typhoon and high wind speed in the south. They played a leading and demonstrating role for resource intensive utilization.

During the reporting period, the Company achieved business breakthroughs in various overseas markets and international customer development. The AKSU RES project signed by the Company in Turkey became its first overseas 3S customer order. Mataraca project’s first non-Goldwind WTG generator replacement work was completed in Brazil and the WTG successfully connected to the grid for power generation. The Company also signed new generator supply and service agreement with the project owner, providing technical renovation and operation and maintenance services for 223 wind turbines for its 14 wind farms. WTGs for Chilik (Kazakhstan) 5MW wind power project and 32 GW121- 2.5MW WTGs of the Punta Sierra project in Chile were all hoisted and entered their commercial operation periods. In terms of international major customer expansion, Goldwind International Holdings (Hong Kong) Limited has made to the supplier list of five major international customers: EDF R, Engie, E.ON, Enel Green Power and EDPR. In the reporting period, the Company received 13 tender invitations from major customers. With a total capacity of 4.2GW, in December 2018, as the exclusive WTG supplier of EDPR, the Company participated in the bidding of the Greek Aerorrachi project (14MW) and was successful in the bidding.

As of the end of the reporting period, the Company had invested in 1.5GW attributable wind power projects, with a total project capacity of 1.34GW and an attributable capacity of 1.22GW under construction. Installed capacity of the completed overseas wind farms was 739MW and the attributable capacity was 303.1MW.
