Taiwan’s Formosa 2 offshore wind project has passed two major construction milestones, completing the installation of 12 turbines and successfully transmitting power to the national grid.

The passing of these construction milestones demonstrate that Formosa 2 continues to make steady progress towards commercial operation, at which point it will supply power to approximately 380,000 households.

With the support of the project sponsors, engineering, financing and supply chain partners, the Formosa 2 team has been working diligently throughout the construction phase. Despite challenging weather conditions this year, the team has utilized all available weather windows and made steady progress.

Michael Klingele, Project Director of Formosa 2 said: “Despite facing challenges posed by recent weather conditions, the team has persisted in advancing construction works, with strong health, safety and environmental performance and high sustainability standards. We are fully committed to ensuring the project becomes a pivotal driver in Taiwan’s green energy transition.”

The installation of the jacket foundations and subsea Inter-Array Cables began in April and May respectively, and the turbine installation commenced in the beginning of June. The project has now completed more than half of the underwater foundation installations and more than a quarter of the turbines has been installed.

The project, which will have an installed capacity of 376 MW on completion, is being developed by JERA, Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG) and Swancor Renewable Energy (SRE). GIG is supported by its portfolio company, Corio Generation.

Since the beginning of the project, the Formosa 2 team have been dedicated to bringing benefits to the local supply chain and supporting jobs in the offshore wind industry. In addition to its collaboration with the National United University in Miaoli, Formosa 2 has also held an art competition to expand green energy education to local middle and elementary schools, laying a solid foundation for future green talent.
