Taiwan’s 367 MW Formosa 2 wind farm achieves first power delivery
The 367 MW Formosa 2 wind plant, located off the island’s Miaoli County (northwestern coast of Taiwan), has achieved first power. The jacket foundations and array cables started to be installed in April and May 2022 respectively, and wind turbines in June 2022. The project will comprise of 47 turbines once completed.
The Formosa 2 project, also known as Haineng Fengdian, is being jointly developed by Japan’s JERA (49%), Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (26%), and Taiwanese company Swancor Renewable Energy (25%).
JERA and Macquarie’s Green Investment Group have already partnered on the Formosa 1 wind farm (128 MW, operational). The consortium is also developping the Formosa 3 project (2 GW). Earlier in July 2022, Jera and Corio Generation, a portfolio company of Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, have agreed to jointly bid for the third phase of Taiwan’s offshore wind zonal development auction for the Formosa 3 project.
In 2021, offshore wind represented less than 1% of Taiwan’s installed capacity (237 MW), as the island only installed its first offshore wind turbine in 2017.
