2024 Installation Campaign Starts at Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm

The construction of the Yunlin offshore wind farm in Taiwan resumes with the 2024 installation campaign now underway, according to Skyborn Renewables, which expects to have the 640 MW project completed this year.

“We’re back in full swing and have installed this season’s first monopile just a few days ago. The monopile installation will continue over the coming months. The OWF Yunlin project is a top priority for Skyborn Renewables and its partners, delivering electricity under two 20-year power purchase agreements,” Skyborn Renewables Taiwan said via social media on 22 March.

The project team and Yunlin contractors are working at full pace to have all the monopile foundations, inter-array cables and wind turbines in place this year, according to the company.

The 2023 installation campaign was completed at the end of last year with 45 monopile foundations, 26 inter-array cables, twelve export cables, and 34 wind turbines installed at the project site in the Taiwan Strait.

In November 2023, Skyborn Renewables said Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, in cooperation with Shimizu, would be responsible for the transportation and installation of monopile foundations in 2024.

Major offshore construction work at the Yunlin offshore wind farm started in December 2020 with the installation of the first monopile and the first of the project’s 80 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines was installed in April 2021.


Once completed, the 640 MW Yunlin offshore wind farm will power over 600,000 Taiwanese households. The project is already producing electricity and has fed over 1.1 TWh of renewable energy into the grid, according to Skyborn Renewables.

The 640 MW Yunlin project is owned by the Yunneng Wind Power consortium which comprises Skyborn Renewables (25 per cent), TotalEnergies (23 per cent), EGCO Group (25 per cent), and a Sojitz Corp-led consortium (27 per cent) which also includes Chugoku Electric Power, Chudenko Corporation, Shikoku Electric Power, and JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation.
