Orsted has delivered first power from its 900MW Greater Changhua 1&2a offshore wind farm, Taiwan’s largest and the Danish utility’s first large-scale project in the Asia-Pacific region.

The array at some 35-60km off Taiwan’s west coast is also the first far-shore wind farm off the island, and once completed at the end of this year will be Asia’s largest offshore wind array outside mainland China.

“Since the 900 MW capacity was first awarded to Orsted in April 2018 through the grid allocation process, our team has spared no efforts to develop and construct Greater Changhua 1 & 2a and achieve first power only four years later,” said Christy Wang, general manager at Orsted Taiwan.
