Ørsted’s board of directors has taken the final investment decision (FID) on the Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind farm in Taiwan.

Prior to the FID, Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs approved Ørsted’s local supply chain plan, and subsequently the company has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Taipower.

The Changhua 1 and 2a wind farm will be located 35 to 50 kilometres off the coast of Changhua County and will have a capacity of approximately 900 MW, which Ørsted claims is enough to supply around one million Taiwanese households. The farm will be constructed in 2021 and 2022.
