4C Offshore Empowering Intelligence

Laizhong Offshore Wind Power Project Floating Wind Farm

15 Feb 2023: The preliminary Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has been reviewed, and the Environmental Protection Committee decided that the EIA must be re-examined with additional documents provided. The committee noted that the layout of wind turbines and type of turbines to be used is unclear, as well as there being no clear plan for the type and quantity of offshore substation units. It was also noted that the ecological survey in the EIA also needs to be strengthened and monitoring time needs to be increased. The committee noted that flight paths of birds should be recorded in reference to the the layout of the wind turbines to assess the possible impacts on birds and to suggest mitigation measures. It is hoped that more than 2 km of bird passageways will be reserved between neighbouring wind farms (in this case RWE's neighbouring projects Zhangfeng and Haian). However, RWE's three aforementioned offshore wind projects overlap with projects that Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) selected in the first auction of the Round 3 Zonal Development phase: CIP's Taichung Fengmiao, Northland's Jia Neng and Northland's Bei Neng, all of which have been allocated a capacity of 500 MW capacity in this first phase of the block development. Chun-Li Lee, Deputy Director, Bureau of Energy, Ministry of Economic Affairs, noted that unless prior wind farm projects are voluntarily abandoned or disqualified due to violations of the law, new development units will still have a chance to progress, albeit the chance is not great.
