Hexicon and IX Wind Team Up on 1,300+ MW Floating Wind Project Offshore Taiwan
Sweden-headquartered Hexicon and IX Wind have joined forces to provide services for the development and construction of a 1,300+ MW floating wind project offshore Taiwan.
The partnership, secured in December 2022, will offer project management, consultancy, and engineering services to the floating offshore wind project.
The wind farm is planned to be commissioned as early as 2028.
Hexicon operates in Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America, and has 17,000 MW gross project portfolio in development through various partnerships.
IX Wind, part of the IX Renewables group and an international consultancy and EPC-Management company, has over 15 years of experience in the renewable energy sector and has been active in Taiwan since 2012, contributing to the completion of the country’s first offshore wind project, Formosa 1.
“With Hexicon, we have found a knowledgeable and strong partner in this emerging floating wind market,” said Eric Kamphues, CEO of IX Wind.
Kamphues added that there may be opportunities to implement Hexicon’s TwinWind foundations in the future, which consist of a floating foundation with two turbines. The twin-turbine design is said to enable more turbines per sea area, which increases the energy yield and reduces the environmental impact.
“We are excited to be entering the Taiwanese market with IX Wind who has been committed to Taiwan for a long time by providing international expertise and cultivating local talent for the offshore wind sector,” said Steve Seo, Managing Director of Hexicon Korea.
