Innogy splashes down in Taiwan

The developer formed a strategic partnership with Taiwanese firm Asia Cement Corporation to develop the 448MW Chu Feng Chu Feng (448MW) Offshoreoff Hsinchu City, Taiwan, Asia-Pacific Click to see full details wind farm off the coast of Hsinchu city in the Taiwan Strait.

It is preparing the site for Taiwan’s next auction round, Innogy stated.

Taiwan’s recently re-elected government is yet to announce firm plans for its next auction rounds.

However, it has outlined its ambition to allocate grid capacity for a further 10GW of offshore wind capacity — in addition to the 5.7GW already tendered — to be commissioned between 2026 and 2035.

Innogy started preparing for offshore wind development in Taiwan, and the wider Asia-Pacific region, by opening an office in the capital city of Taipei in 2018.

“The local expertise of our partner perfectly complements our global experience and our technical know-how,” said Innogy’s senior vice president for offshore renewables operations, Sven Utermöhlen.

Taiwan’s ministry of economic affairs is deciding on development zones to support the planned 10GW of new capacity. It is yet to outline an auction schedule for this capacity.

Innogy developed more than 2.5GW of operational offshore wind capacity in European waters, and secured a deal for its planned 1.4GW Sofia wind farm off the UK in 2019.

Its offshore business unit – including the 448MW Chu Feng site – is due to be transferred to RWE under an asset swap deal, due to be competed later this year.
