The offshore wind power plants are watched as a new market to accomplish the needed energy, bringing technical and economical challenges. Advanced countries in the field of wind industry are now appling the 600 MPa, 150~200 mm thick high strength steel to offshore wind power plants. Moreover, the high efficient welding methods which is weldable ultra tick high strength steel with 1 pass welding are developed and applied in manufacturing the offshore wind tower. This article deals with the present world wide status of offshore power plants and the tendency of the development of high efficient welding technology for constructing the offshore wind tower. This article intends to offer the materials for development and raising of the domestic offshore wind power technology.

Keywords :Offshore wind power, High efficient, 1 pass welding, Ultra thick, High strength steel
