The wind farm is part of the 900 MW Greater Changhua 1 & 2a project. 

Ørsted announced the milestone via social media, jokingly adding that "we now have only 110 wind turbines to go!"

"This is a new benchmark for Ørsted and offshore wind in Taiwan, taking less than 4 years winced Ørsted was awarded 900 MW Greater Changua 1 & 2a Offshore Wind Farms in April 2018 to the 1st WTG installed," she said, adding that the installed turbine was Siemens Gamesa's SG 8.0-167DD turbine.

She also said that the first turbine's nacelle was produced locally and that the tower was built by Chin Fong Machine Industrial Co. in Taiwan.

Greater Changhua 1 & 2 a will be located 35-60 kilometers off the coast of Changhua County. With a total capacity of 900 MW, Greater Changhua 1 & 2a will be able to supply around 1 million Taiwanese households with electricity.
