CIP Inaugurates Changfang-Xidao Offshore Wind Farm


Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has completed construction of the 600 MW Changfang-Xidao offshore wind project. 

The project’s two wind farms are located 11 km off the west coast of Taiwan and consist of 62 Vestas V174 turbines and jacket foundations supplied by Taiwan’s Century Wind Power. 

“The inauguration of Changfang-Xidao is a landmark for CIP as well as for the offshore wind industry in Taiwan,” says Christina Grumstrup Sørensen, senior partner at CIP.  

“In the past seven years, the development and construction team, suppliers, partners and shareholders have demonstrated the power of close collaboration. Together we have successfully constructed a project that makes a meaningful contribution to Taiwan’s energy transition and that plays a significant role in the establishment of the local offshore wind industry,  and will support Taiwan’s long-term offshore wind ambitions.”

Changfang-Xidao is majority owned by CIP’s Flagship funds CI II and CI III. Thailand-based Global Power Synergy Public Company, Taiwan Life and Transglobe Life each own minority stakes. 

The project was constructed by a team led by Copenhagen Offshore Partners, CIP’s offshore wind development partner, and the local Copenhagen Infrastructure Service Company, the global service provider to CIP.

Changfang-Xidao are CIP’s first offshore wind farms in Asia Pacific.
