Upstream energy firm Enterprize Energy
Pte Ltd has launched its first offshore wind farm project in the Taiwan Strait.
The Hai Long offshore wind farm project is a joint venture between Enterprize’s wholly-owned subsidiary Yushan Energy and Canada-based Northland Power
Yushan – which owns a 40% stake – has “exceptionally experienced” professionals in its team and has also bought on board several Taiwan-based contractors to add further expertise.
Ian Hatton, founder and chairman of Enterprize, commented: “From 2012, having recognized the combination of the Taiwan Strait’s excellent natural resource and the positive, pragmatic and balanced regulatory regime introduced by the Government of Taiwan we have progressively developed our presence in Taiwan’s exciting but challenging offshore wind sector.”
Hatton previously established Eclipse Energy, which was responsible for the successful Ormonde offshore wind farm in the East Irish Sea.
The two firms hope that Hai Long can help Taiwan to meet its offshore wind generation objectives and help create an Asian offshore wind industry that can act as “a role model to other regions of the world”.
