Taiwan Selects 10 Offshore Wind Projects in Phase 1 Round 3 Auction

Robert Speht, CEO of Vidi Energy welcomes the announcement from the Ministry of Economic Affairs in Taiwan, stating: “It’s great to see the offshore wind sector firming up in Taiwanese waters. Most of these projects will be floating wind, and it is great to see the floating wind market firming up like this as it gives confidence to investors.”

Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has selected ten offshore wind projects in the first auction of the Round 3 Zonal Development Phase.

The ten projects are proposed by: Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP); Corio Generation and JERA; Northland Power; Synera Renewable Energy (SRE; formerly known as Swancor Renewable Energy); Taiya Renewable Energy and EDF Renewables; and Skyborn Renewables (formerly known as wpd) and LeaLea Group.

According to the Ministry, some project sites are overlapping, so the final word on the selection will be made known by the end of the year.

The Ministry released the project list and stated that the table contains “order, project name, and planned grid connection year”. Whether the order means project are listed as preferred for development is unclear at this point.

Most of the projects’ planned commissioning years are set to 2027, with the exception of Skyborn’s Haixia which is planned for commissioning in 2026 and Corio and JERA’s two projects which are due to be put into operation in 2026/2027.

CIP’s Taichung Fengmiao offshore wind farm, planned for the waters off Taichung City, is being developed to have an installed capacity of 1,800 MW and to comprise turbines of between 9 MW and 20 MW of nominal capacity.
