The first 75m long blades, 378t nacelles and 37m long tower sections began their journey to Taiwan from Aalborg, Denmark, and Cuxhaven, Germany, on board three vessels.

Formosa 1 Phase 2 will comprise 20 Siemens Gamesa 6MW turbines installed on monopile foundations some 6km off the west coast of the Miaoli district in the Taiwan Strait.

The 120MW wind farm, an extension to the existing Formosa 1 Phase 1, is scheduled to be operational in 2020.

The project is owned by Formosa I Wind Power Co. Ltd., a partnership of Ørsted A/S (35%), JERA (25%), Macquarie Capital (25%), and Swancor Renewable Energy Co. Ltd (15%).
