Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration has concluded the review process and approved the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of Ørsted’s four offshore wind projects located off Changhua County in Taiwan.
With the EIA approvals, they have secured exclusivity over the development of these four sites. The next step for the four Greater Changhua projects is to secure the corresponding grid capacity in 2018 and obtain the establishment permit latest end of 2019. Shortly thereafter, the company aims to secure the feed-in-tariff by signing the power purchase agreement. The total capacity of the four wind farms, which will be located between 35 and 60 km from shore, is expected to be 2.4 GW. Subject to the final investment decision, construction of the first of the four projects could potentially start as early as 2019.
