Formosa 3 (Haiding) Offshore Wind Project includes Haiding 1, Haiding 2 and Haiding 3, a total of 3 offshore wind farms, located 35-60km off the coast of Changhua at County, Taiwan, with a total potential capacity of up to 2GW. Jointly developed by JERA, GIG and EnBW, it is the largest offshore wind project under development in Taiwan.
When fully operational, it’s estimated Formosa 3 will generate enough Renewable energy to power the equivalent of between 1.5 to 2 million households in Taiwan while displacing c. 2,670 kt CO₂e every year of its operational life. Formosa 3 was granted its Environmental Impact Assessment approvals in February 2018 and will apply for capacity in the next round ( Zonal Development ) of grid allocations in 2020.
