Vestas Turbines to Spin on Taiwanese Offshore Wind Farm

Taiwanese state-owned utility Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) and Foxwell have selected the localised Vestas V174-9.5 MW wind turbines for the 300 MW Taipower Offshore Wind Project Phase II (TPC Changhua Phase II) in Taiwan.

Vestas and Foxwell have now signed supply and service agreements for the project, Alex Robertson, Vestas’ General Manager for Taiwan, said in a social media post.

In December 2020, Foxwell selected Teras Offshore to transport and install 31 wind turbines at TPC Changhua Phase II.

The TPC Changhua Phase II was one of the eleven offshore wind projects selected by the Taiwanese government in April 2018 to be developed by 2025.

The wind farm, located approximately 14.7 kilometres west of Lukang in Changhua County, is expected to come online by September 2025.

Foxwell Energy, an affiliate of Shinfox, won the tender from Taipower for the development of the TPC Changhua Phase II at a total contract cost of TWD 62.88 billion (EUR 2.02 billion) in June 2020. Shinfox is the renewable energy branch of the Foxlink Group.
