Anping Port Supports the National Green Energy Transition Initiative

Supporting the National Green Energy Transition Initiative, TIPC Builds up Anping Port as Auxiliary Support Base for Offshore Wind Power Sector

The Taiwan International Ports Corporation, in support of Executive Yuan energy transition policy priorities, is committed to ramping up facilities at Anping Port to provide auxiliary support services to offshore wind farms currently under development in the Taiwan Strait. Starting in December of last year (2023), Anping Port Wharf Nos. 10, 11, 17, and 18 and adjacent yards have been made available for lease to companies involved in offshore wind farm development for use as operational platforms and the handling and storage of wind turbine assemblies.

As part of its response to the “National Blueprint to Achieve Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050” announced in March 2022, TIPC designated Anping Port an auxiliary support base for the nation’s offshore wind power industry, with related facilities centered on port wharves 10, 11, 17, and 18. Wharves 10 and 11, including 6.8ha of adjacent land, were successfully leased in 2022. Also, in line with lessor needs, TIPC upgraded Wharf 11 to handle heavy cargo and turned operating rights over to the offshore wind farm development firm on January 1st of this year. Wharves 17 and 18, including 5.8ha of adjacent land, were leased in May 2023 and officially turned over to the lessor on December 1st of the same year. Currently, all four wharves are engaged in the offshore wind farm development effort in terms of transporting, handling, and storing related equipment and turbine assemblies. Furthermore, Anping Port is the main base for Taiwan’s domestically developed offshore wind farm support ship, the “Green Jade”.

Wharf No. 11, Anping Port’s first heavy cargo wharf is 210m in length and maintained to a depth of -12m. Over half (1.64ha) of the dedicated 3.06 hectares of adjacent yard space is rated to handle an average of 30mt per square meter, while the remaining 1.42ha is rated for 20mt per square meter. Work on heavy cargo Wharf 11 began on March 6th, 2022 and finished up one year and nine months later on December 25th, 2023. TIPC, committed to providing the support necessary to keep national offshore power generation plans on schedule, met its goal of leasing Anping’s four wharves to offshore wind farm development firms by the end of 2023.

In support of the nation’s green energy transition, TIPC has not only invested in critical new infrastructure but also successfully established a number of its ports as key logistics and operational hubs for the country’s growing green energy sector. In providing essential services to the offshore wind power / green energy supply chain, TIPC is further optimizing the utilization of available port resources, bringing new vitality to its ports, and securing a prominent role in the national effort to achieve “net zero” by 2050.
