In order to realize the government’s target in localization for the third phase of wind farm development, Taiya Renewable Energy has joined hands with five companies on forming a local maintenance team to fully support the former’s development in wind farms and exert determination in cultivating localized offshore wind power generation through substantial actions.
The partners include James Fisher Renewables Taiwan, PDE Offshore Corporation, DACC Marine Engineering Co., Ltd., High Tien Offshore Co., Ltd., and Jong Shyn Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.

Apart from the announced Huan Ya Floating Wind Farm and the Changhua Huan Ya Offshore Wind Farm that the company will participate in tender this year, Taiya will also continue developing other wind farms of fixed and floating foundations. Taiya commented that it is very honored to have received support from the local maintenance team that will facilitate exertion in the government’s localization policy, support on domestic green power demand and sustainable growth of local industry and supply chains, as well as participation in government’s energy transformation policies.
