Formosa 2 Wind Farm Stands Complete Offshore Taiwan
All 47 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines have been installed at the 376 MW Formosa 2 wind farm off the Miaoli coast in Taiwan.
The last wind turbine was successfully installed on Tuesday, 31 January.
The AIS data shows Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-ups Blue Tern and Bold Tern working on the wind farm at the time.
Commissioning and completion works continue, and soon the wind farm will be supplying its full capacity of power to the grid to fulfill Taiwan’s green energy transition targets, Formosa 2 said.
Despite challenging winter weather conditions in Taiwan, Formosa 2 said it has been working diligently with the support of the project partners to complete the wind farm construction.
Following the installation of jacket foundations and subsea cables in 2022, now all 47 wind turbines are standing in the Taiwan Strait, and over 80 per cent of the installed turbines are generating power to the grid.
”We extend our sincere gratitude to our valued partners, contractors, and project team members for their unwavering commitment and outstanding contributions,” Tiemen Maebe, Project Director of Formosa 2, said.
”With the successful completion of this milestone, we are now well positioned to move forward towards commercial operation and the operation and maintenance phase, while ensuring adherence to the most stringent standards of health, safety, and environmental performance. We remain fully committed to providing sustainable and renewable energy to Taiwan.”
Formosa 2 offshore wind project is being developed by JERA, Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG), and Synera Renewable Energy (formerly known as Swancor Renewable Energy). GIG is supported by its portfolio company, Corio Generation.
