August 18 (Renewables Now) - The renewables business of France’s EDF (EPA:EDF) has joined hands with Taiwanese offshore wind developer Taiya Renewable Energy to bid in the Asian country’s upcoming offshore wind auction round.

EDF Renewables and its partner intend to take part with the 440-MW Huan-Yang offshore wind project developed by Taiya Renewable Energy, the latter said on Wednesday.

The Huan-Yang wind farm is planned to be installed about 7 kilometres off the coast of Changhua county, in water depths of between 15 metres and 45 metres. The plant will be equipped with fixed-bottom foundations and wind turbine generators of between 9.5 MW and 15 MW, which will produce around 1.6 billion kWh of electricity annually.

The partners are currently working to receive a qualification to bid in the auction. The Phase-3 Zonal Development offshore wind round is planned to be held in the third quarter of 2022.

Taiwan is due to connect 5.5 GW of offshore wind by 2025 and the government aims to allocate seabed rights for a further 15 GW in the 2026-2035 period.
