Offshore wind in Taiwan moved to bigger scale as global champion Orsted has kicked off the installation at sea of the 900MW Greater Changhua 1 & 2A projects, the first large-scale and far shore wind farms off the island.

Located at 35-60 kilometres from the coast of Changhua Country, the wind farms are slated to provide power to one million households next year.

"With 30 years of experience and an end-to-end business model of developing, constructing, and operating offshore wind farms, Orsted has been committed since day one to helping Taiwan build first world-class offshore wind farms to provide clean energy and contribute to its energy transition goal," Orsted Asia-Pacific president Matthias Bausenwein said.
