Global floating wind development pioneer BlueFloat Energy made its first move into Taiwan with a 1GW-plus project called ‘Winds of September’.

The project plans to deploy floating turbines in a 125km2 area 25km off Hsinchu County in depths of 70-80 metres.

BlueFloat will enter the project in Taiwan’s Round 3 of offshore wind tenders, the first of regular auctions the island hopes will help it add 15GW of additional offshore wind power in the 2026-35 period.
