June 5 (Renewables Now) - Germany’s Wpd AG said on Monday it has secured an over 160-MW pipeline of onshore wind projects in South Korea and announced the construction start-up of 2.2 MW of solar parks in Taiwan.
The company has won the onshore wind pipeline through a cooperation deal with an unnamed wind developed in South Korea. The particular projects will be put into service from 2021 onwards. Wpd said that wind measurement campaigns have already been initiated at the sites without providing specific details on the projects.
Wpd operates in South Korea through its Seoul-based subsidiary Wpd Korea Ltd, which was set up last November.
In a separate press release, the German firm announced it has started building 2.2 MW of photovoltaic (PV) plants in Taiwan’s Yunlin and Changhua regions. The facilities will be equipped with Canadian Solar modules and Delta inverters that will be made locally. It expects to commission the plants by the middle of August.
Wpd’s goal for the upcoming years is to put on stream 140 MW of solar capacity in Taiwan, according to Niclas Fritsch, managing director of Wpd Solar GmbH.
