Power Technology:

Swancor Renewable Energy (SRE) has announced plans to develop three offshore wind projects totaling 4.4GW offshore Taiwan.

The Formosa 4-1, Formosa 4-2 and Formosa 4-3 projects will be located in the north-western territorial waters of Miaoli County.

Swancor Renewable Energy CEO Lucas Lin said: “Swancor Renewable Energy has been preliminarily developing Formosa 4 since 2019. We are excited to support the Taiwan Government’s ambitious offshore wind renewable energy target.

“We will be leveraging our development experience from Formosa 1 and Formosa 2 with our new portfolio and are looking forward to extending our relationships with the Miaoli County Government and the local stakeholders.”

This week, SRE submitted these projects to the Taiwan Environmental Protection Agency. The company proposes to develop the turbines with both fixed-base and floating foundations. The company has said the Formosa 4 wind farm would begin operations after 2025, subject to project contracts and financing, as well as environmental impact assessment and government approvals.

Previously, SRE was involved in developing the Formosa 1 (128MW) and Formosa 2 (376MW) projects. These are now in operation and construction, respectively.
