Construction of the Formosa 2 offshore wind farm in Taiwan has been completed and has been celebrated by an inauguration ceremony at the Waipu Fishing Port in Miaoli.
With all 47 wind turbine generators (WTGs) installed earlier this year and connected to the grid in March, Formosa 2 is stepping into the operational stage and is fully equipped to supply 376MW of clean energy, supporting Taiwan's green energy transition.
Formosa 2 successfully installed all 47 x 8MW Siemens Gamesa WTGs on January 31. By March, all WTGs were commissioned to the grid. Last month, Formosa 2 generated its full capacity of 376MW of clean energy for the first time since it was built.
Formosa 2 is a joint development project by JERA (49%), Macquarie Asset Management’s Green Investment Group (26%), and Synera Renewable Energy (25%). GIG is supported by its portfolio company, Corio Generation.
Located between 4 and 10 kilometres off the coast of Zhunan Township, Miaoli County, the wind farm has an installed capacity of 376MW and will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of approximately 380,000 households.
