None of the Chinese missiles that hit waters around Taiwan landed in areas close to wind farms or projects by Orsted, but the global offshore wind champion in a statement to Recharge acknowledged it is aware of the ‘increased tension across the Taiwan Strait’ between the island and mainland China.

China last week in retaliation to the visit to Taiwan by US house speaker Nancy Pelosi had fired close to a dozen ballistic missiles that landed mostly north, east and south of Taiwan, but not to the west of the island, where Orsted and most other developers have their offshore wind projects.
