DNV has signed a USD 17.7 million contract to be the Owner’s Engineer for Taipower Offshore Wind Project Phase II (Changhua Phase II) in Taiwan. It is the largest offshore wind farm being developed solely by a Taiwan Power Company yet.

The work scope will last into the second half of 2025, as DNV confirmed in a press statement. DNV’s international and local experts will support project engineering reviews and marine coordination during construction. The scope over the project life cycle right through to commissioning includes design review, fabrication and construction assurance. Detailed design of the 31-turbine project is due this year, with the wind farm scheduled to be online by autumn 2025. DNV will work in close partnership with Taiwan-based engineering consultancy GIBSIN Engineers Ltd., sharing best practice and knowledge.

“Our journey with DNV began several years ago. Drawing on both organizations’ rich culture and technical expertise, we are set up to contribute to the growth of Taiwan’s clean and green future,” said Tsao-Hua Hsu, Vice President for Renewables at Taipower. “This is a true testimony to the partnership of two organizations sharing the same objectives for this market. Taipower and DNV are fully committed to the Taiwan government’s efforts to promote localization and build local capabilities.”

Taiwan is set to become Asia Pacific’s second largest offshore wind market behind mainland China. Taiwan aims to generate 20% of its electricity from renewables by 2025. By then, 5.7 GW of installed capacity is scheduled to be available from offshore wind farms including, among others, Changhua Phase II and TPC’s earlier 109.2 MW Changhua Phase I. The government wants another 10 GW of offshore wind installed between 2026 and 2036.
