October 24 (SeeNews) - UK-based company Offshore Design Engineering has been selected to work on an offshore wind project in Taiwan, owned by Northland Power Inc (TSE:NPI) and Enterprize Energy.
Enterprize Energy announced today the launch of the Hai Long Offshore Wind Farm Project, in which it holds a 40% stake through subsidiary Yushan Energy. Several Taiwan-based contractors have also been engaged for the project.
Details on the wind park’s capacity were not given, but Singapore-based Enterprize Energy said in the press statement that the wind farm will be “an up-scaled, technical evolution” of the 150-MW Ormonde offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea. Ian Hatton, founder and chairman of Enterprize Energy, previously established Eclipse Energy -- the company that developed the Ormonde project and then sold it to Sweden’s Vattenfall AB.
Canada-based Northland Power, which holds 60% in Hai Long, also has a 60% equity stake in the 600-MW Gemini wind farm in the Netherlands and an 85% equity stake in the 332-MW Nordsee One offshore wind project. Malcolm Garrity, Enterprize Energy’s CEO, said that Northland brings key experience in offshore wind project financing to Hai Long.
