Greater Changhua

Table of Contents


The Greater Changhua Offshore Wind Farms off Changhua County’s coast in Taiwan are set to redefine the region’s energy landscape with a combined capacity of 2.4 GW. Initiating construction in November 2019 and achieving first power by April 2022, these projects are pivotal in Taiwan’s transition towards renewable energy, aiming to supply power to 2.8 million households upon full operation by 2026. With Siemens Gamesa providing cutting-edge turbine technology, and DEME involved in seabed preparation, these wind farms are equipped to withstand local environmental challenges, including typhoons. 

About the project

Location: Off the coast of Changua county 

Capacity: Combined planned capacity of 2.4 GW 

Timeline: Construction for Greater Changhua 1 and 2a commenced in November 2019, with the latter reaching its first power generation in April 2022. The anticipated commissioning of these initial phases is set for Q1 2024. The Greater Changhua 2b and 4 projects entered the construction phase in Q3 2023, targeting operational status by 2026 

Project Significance:  The wind farms will feature cutting-edge turbine technology designed to withstand local environmental conditions, including typhoons. The Greater Changhua Offshore Wind Farms represent a significant leap towards achieving Taiwan’s renewable energy ambitions.  Upon completion, the Greater Changhua wind farms are expected to power approximately 2.8 million households. 

Preparations for the first phase are in full swing, with colleagues attending the Rehearse on Concept (RoC) Drill in Singapore in the first week of February. The first phase is planned for execution in Q3 2024, with offshore execution scheduled for Q2 and Q3 2025. Theodoros Papadimitriou handles engineering, and Panagiotis Maniatis manages the project.
