Northland Power has announced that the Taiwan Bureau of Energy (BOE) has awarded 232MW to the Hai Long 2 offshore wind farm and 512MW to the Hai Long 3 offshore wind farm under Taiwan’s offshore wind auction program.
These awards are separate from and in addition to the 300MW that Hai Long 2 was allocated by the Taiwan BOE on April 30, 2018 under Taiwan’s Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program. Northland and its partner Yushan Energy own 60% and 40%, respectively, of Hai Long 2 and Hai Long 3. Hai Long 2 and Hai Long 3 received environmental permits in early 2018 and development work is ongoing. Project economics and financing details will be finalised as development progresses; selection of the turbine supplier and negotiation of construction contracts is underway.
