Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs has awarded Ørsted the right to connect 900MW offshore wind capacity to Taiwan’s power grid.
The following projects are awarded to the company:
- Changhua 1 with a capacity of 605MW and grid connection in 2021.
- Changhua 2 with a capacity of 295MW and grid connection in 2021.
This means that Ørsted will be delivering the first large-scale commercial offshore wind projects in the Changhua region and connect 900MW into Changhua’s total available grid capacity of 1,000MW in 2021. Next step for Ørsted’s projects, which are located in the Taiwan Strait off Changhua County, is to obtain the establishment permit and to secure the feed-in-tariff by signing a power purchase agreement with Taipower. The projects are expected to be built in 2021, subject to Ørsted’s final investment decision.
