First turbine installed at the 295 MW Zhong Neng offshore wind park in Taiwan

The renewable developer Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has announced the start of construction of the 295 MW Zhong Neng offshore wind park off Changhua County, Taiwan, as the first Vestas turbine has been installed. The Zhong Neng project, which will feature 31 Vestas V174-9.5 MW wind turbines, is being jointly developed by the Taiwan-based China Steel Corporation (CSC) and CIP. Once completed, the Zhong Neng offshore wind park is expected to generate 1.15 TWh/year of electricity and offset emissions by 550 ktCO2/year. Completion is expected by the end of 2024.

At the end of 2023, offshore wind represented  1% of Taiwan’s installed capacity (with 613 MW), as the island only installed its first offshore wind turbine in 2017. Onshore wind capacity stood at 1.3 GW at end-2023. Currently, Taiwan has nearly 2 GW of wind projects under construction and over 22 GW under development.
