President Tsai Ing-wen is lauding the completion of a 900-megawatt capacity wind farm project off the coast of Changhua as "a foundation for Taiwan to boost its competitiveness in the net-zero era."


During the inauguration of the Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind farms, Tsai described the facility as "the largest in Taiwan and the Asia-Pacific region" and thanked energy company Orsted for bringing renewable technology to Taiwan.

The president pointed out that since 2016, a total of 296 offshore wind turbines have been installed, producing a combined capacity of 2.37-gigawatts and the number of offshore turbines is expected to reach 300 this year.


Orsted President and CEO Mads Nipper described the inauguration of the Changhua wind farms as a landmark achievement for both his company and Taiwan as they reaffirmed "Taiwan as the frontrunner in wind energy in the region."
