Wind Energy – Taiwan
Ørsted announced on January 30 that the 900 MW Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind farms has generated clean electricity equivalent to reducing 830,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions since the first turbine was connected to the grid in April 2022.
This amount is comparable to the carbon reduction amount of more than 6,400 Daan Forest Parks, highlighting the substantial contribution of large-scale offshore wind farms to achieving net-zero carbon goals.
Ørsted’s Greater Changhua 1 and 2 is the largest and farthest offshore wind farm in Taiwan in terms of installed capacity and distance from the shore. Currently, 107 turbines out of the total 111 wind turbines are completed, with nearly 85% of them connected to the grid, representing approximately 700 MW, making it the largest grid-connected capacity for a single wind farm in Taiwan.
