Spanish company BlueFloat Energy plans 1GW offshore wind capacity in Taiwan

Spanish offshore wind company BlueFloat Energy has planned a capacity of over 1GW in Taiwan.

With this project, the company has entered the Taiwanese market. It is a part of the round three market auction in Taiwan.

The floating wind project has been named “Winds of September.”

According to BlueFloat Energy, the project is located 25 km off the coast of Hsinchu County and Hsinchu City.

BlueFloat Energy CEO Carlos Martin commented, “We try to think of bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind as parallel industries. We believe that floating wind farms have a number of important differences compared to bottom-fixed projects and that a successful floating wind project development strategy requires a very different approach and mindset.”

The company comprises a team of professionals from the offshore wind sector with good experience of execution of floating wind projects.

The company plans to support Taiwan to achieve its net zero goal and further boost the energy transition process.

Michael Pinkerton, Taiwan country manager of BlueFloat Energy, was quoted, “We will work with local partners, suppliers, and stakeholders to deliver our project pipeline that will not only provide vast quantities of locally sourced, clean and affordable electricity but will also create a greater number of jobs in the industry, forming many collaboration opportunities.”
