Orsted, a global leader in renewable energy, has announced that the installation of turbines at its 900MW Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind project in Taiwan is nearing completion, with fewer than 10 turbines left to be installed.
The Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind project, boasting over 100 wind turbines installed to date, stands as a monumental undertaking in Taiwan. It not only represents the largest offshore wind project in the country but also marks Orsted's first foray into large-scale offshore wind farm development in the Asia-Pacific region.
Situated 35km to 60km off the coast of Changhua County, the project's strategic location harnesses the power of the strong offshore winds in the region, making it a key contributor to Taiwan's renewable energy landscape.
Upon its completion, the Greater Changhua wind farm is expected to play a crucial role in accelerating the island's ambitious transition to cleaner energy sources. It will serve as a significant source of green energy, meeting the growing needs of export industries and helping Taiwan move closer to its net-zero emissions goal, as outlined in its sustainability plans.
