The third stage vendor of Taiwan's offshore wind power block development is about to be selected. Taiya Renewable Energy announced today (8/17) that the "Huanyang Offshore Wind Power Project" will partner with EDF Renewables.
The Huanyang Offshore Wind Power Project is located in the outer sea off Changhua County. The wind farm covers an area of about 53 square kilometers, the water depth is about 15-45 meters, and the closest distance to the shore is about 8 kilometers. The wind farm was developed using a fixed underwater foundation. It is estimated that annual power generation can reach up to about 1.6 billion kWh, which can supply about 460,000 households with clean and renewable energy for a year.

The company also looks forward to working with more experienced strategic partners to work together for Taiwan's offshore wind power industry and to implement Taiwan's 2050 net-zero carbon emissions goal.
As EDF Renewables comes to Taiwan with its abundant international maritime engineering technology, Taiya Renewable Energy will also take advantage of the close relationship between local developers and local people to help Taiwan add 15 GW of offshore wind power installations in 2035 and looks forward to becoming a reliable long-term partner in Taiwan's renewable energy sector.
