Ørsted signed the contract with HSG Sungdong, worth hundreds of billions of Korean won, in the presence of the Danish Ambassador Svend Olling, Ørsted Korea Country Manager Seung-Ho Choe, Project Development Director Jonas Solhøj, and HSG Sungdong CEO Jinsang Lee.

In March, the developer made the final investment decision on the Greater Changhua 2b & 4 offshore wind farms.

The project is set to use suction bucket jacket foundations, the first time this type of foundation will be installed in Asia Pacific.

Ørsted secured 920 MW of grid capacity for the offshore wind farms in 2018 in Taiwan’s first competitive price-based auction with no mandatory local content requirements. Two years later, the developer signed a corporate power purchase agreement (CPPA) with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) for the offtake of the full production from Changhua 2b and 4.

The offshore wind farms will comprise around 65 wind turbines with an individual output of 14 MW installed some 35-60 kilometres off the Changhua coast.

By the end of 2025, when the new Changhua 2b and 4 offshore wind farms are built, Ørsted will have more than 1.82 GW of operational offshore wind capacity in Taiwan.
