First revealed in 2021, the total installation capacity of the offshore wind farm is planned to be 350 MW and is expected to be completed in 2029.

To engage in the fast-growing Taiwan renewable energy market, Iberdrola set up an office in Taipei in 2021 as a base for its expanding APAC footprint.

Iberdrola Taiwan is currently developing two offshore wind projects totalling up to 1 GW in installation capacity for Taiwan’s Zonal Development Round 3.2 selection, according to the company’s website.

As previously reported, Iberdrola revealed three new offshore wind development projects in Taiwan with a combined potential capacity of approximately 6 GW.
