Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) through the funds Copenhagen Infrastructure II K/S (CI II) and Copenhagen Infrastructure III K/S (CI III) has acquired three offshore wind sites under development in Taiwan. The sites are all located off the Changhua coast in the Taiwan Strait and have a total capacity of up to 1500MW.  The three projects have been developed up to now by Fuhai Wind Farm Corporation.

 

As part of the acquisition of the projects, CIP has entered into a memorandum of understanding with local Taiwanese company China Shipbuilding Corporation (CSBC) regarding supply and installation services.

 

Until now the three projects have been developed by Fuhai Wind Farm Corporation. Further development of the sites will be undertaken by CIP in collaboration TGC.

 

The Government in Taiwan has set a target of 3000MW of offshore wind to be constructed by 2025 and decided that nuclear power will be phased out by 2025.

 

Further development of the sites will be undertaken by CIP in collaboration with local partner Taiwan Generations Corporation (TGC). The three projects are in the process of applying for the required environmental permits and are still subject to a final investment decision.
