February 18 (Renewables Now) - MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has been chosen as the preferred turbine supplier for the 300-MW Zhong Neng offshore wind project in Taiwanese waters.

The joint venture (JV) between Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) and Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (TYO:7011) said today it is currently in the final stages of developing a local supply chain for the project. Local industrial partners will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

The Zhong Neng project is promoted by China Steel Corporation (TPE:2002) and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

Last November, the JV formed by Belgian marine engineering company DEME Offshore and Taiwanese shipbuilder CSBC Corporation signed a contract for transportation and installation of foundations and a preferred bidder agreement for transportation and installation of wind turbines for Zhong Neng.

The offshore wind farm is planned to go into operation in 2024.
