The Hai Long offshore wind farm is a 1,044MW offshore wind farm project proposed to be developed approximately 50km off the coast of Changhua County in Taiwan. The offshore wind farm will be owned and developed by a consortium of Canadian independent power producer Northland Power (60%) and Taiwanese offshore energy developer Yushan Energy (40%). Japan’s Mitsui holds a 50% stake in Yushan Energy. The Hai Long offshore wind project will be developed in three stages with each stage involving a separate grid allocation. The three development phases of the wind farm include Hai Long 2A (300MW), Hai Long 2B (232MW) and Hai Long 3 (512MW). The Hai Long 2 and Hai Long 3 projects received all required environmental permits in 2018. Construction works on Hai Long 2A are expected to be started in 2023 with grid connection expected by 2025.
