Heavily laden transport ships are repeatedly arriving at the ports of Mailiao and Anping in Taiwan at present. Their cargo: monopiles and so-called transition pieces manufactured in Europe and destined for the construction of wpd’s Yunlin offshore wind farm. But not all the components of the foundation structures for the total of 80 turbines in the project are produced in Europe. 50% are made locally in Taiwan.
Developed by wpd, Yunlin offshore wind project, with total investment of NTD 94 billion, has reached financial close by the end of May. Today bankers, co-investors and suppliers gathering in Taipei to celebrate.
