Ørsted inaugurates Taiwan offshore hub

9 August 2022

On 2 August Ørsted inaugurated the Ørsted Taiwan Offshore Wind Farms Operations and Maintenance Hub. Located at the Port of Taichung, the O&M hub is the first operations facility with green design, and the largest in terms of size and offshore service capacity, in the Asia-Pacific region. It has been built with the aim of serving four Greater Changhua offshore wind farms with a combined capacity of approximately 2.4 GW. It covers an area of 7868 sq m and houses a staff of 80.

Ørsted began O&M deployment in 2018 with a strategic plan to establish full-scale operations, which is an unprecedented industrial practice in Taiwan.

Mads Nipper, Group President and CEO of Ørsted, says: “Taiwan is our first market of entry in Asia-Pacific and home to our regional headquarters. We’re contributing significantly to Taiwan’s energy transition through the 1.82 GW capacity we’ve been awarded and more than 5.6 GW of new projects in the pipeline. The inauguration of our O&M hub, which is the first operations facility we’ve built outside of Europe and a significant investment we’ve made in this market, clearly demonstrates our long-term commitment to Taiwan and our dedication to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.”

The hub is designed in accordance with global standards from Ørsted’s O&M portfolio to oversee the daily operations of offshore wind farms, ensure optimal clean energy output, and manage all safety aspects related to the works carried out by the offshore O&M technicians. The facility uses locally manufactured and sustainable materials to reduce carbon footprint and contribute to Ørsted’s 2025 carbon neutrality goal.
