Ørsted has signed of a wharf lease and a 20-year operations and maintenance (O&M) lease with the Port of Taichung, managed by Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) and TIPC Marine Construction. The wharfs at the Port of Taichung will be upgraded and utilised for the construction and operation of the Greater Changhua offshore wind farms from 2022.

The Port of Taichung has been selected as the most suitable operations & maintenance (O&M) base for these wind farms due to its proximity to the sites, water depth, wharf facilities and navigational access quality. Ørsted will invest in building the new and environmentally friendly O&M base to provide long-term operations and maintenance services for the wind farms.

In accordance with the construction timeline for Greater Changhua 1 and 2a, Ørsted has begun the upgrade of the leased wharfs to be ready to store components, such as pin piles, towers and blades. The wharf lease with the Port of Taichung will cover the period during which Ørsted plans to install at least 1.82GW offshore wind capacity in Taiwan.

The construction of the O&M building will begin in 2020, with expected inauguration in 2022. Designed by the MAA Group’s local firm, this building will be a green building with a gold rating from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), making it the flagship O&M center for Ørsted Asia Pacific. It will be constructed in accordance with similar European design principles and installed with green solutions, such as recycling of rainwater, maximal application of local green materials, solar panels and charging stations for electric cars and scooters.
