Taipei, Aug. 16 (CNA) The first phase of a project to build an offshore wind power operation and maintenance base in Changhua, central Taiwan under Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) is set to be accomplished by 2021, CIP said Saturday.

The Danish green energy developer aims to build the base into the first professional offshore and energy (O&E) port for offshore wind farms in the Asia-Pacific, the company said in a statement.

The first phase of the development project covers a total area of 35 hectares, including 16.86 hectares of land for the Changhua fishing port, which is near the planned O&E center, 3.14 hectares for road construction and 15 hectares for industrial use, CIP added.

CIP said it first expressed interest in building the O&E base in 2017 and has invested over NT$2 billion (US$67.796 million) to develop the port in the Changhua coastal area and a nearby O&E center for the 589MW Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farms.    [FULL  STORY]
