The Cobra Group joins forces with French company Eolfi for the development of offshore wind projects in Taiwan
9 January 2018
Cobra Concessions has signed an alliance with French developer Eolfi, specialists in floating wind energy projects for a stake in the Taiwan Eolfi Greater China company.
Eolfi is developing the precommercial Groix & Belle-Ile wind farm project 28 km from the coast in Brittany (France): 4 x 6 MW floating wind turbines that will become operational in 2021.
Cobra Concessions, meanwhile, is building the Kincardine Offshore Windfarm project, which will have a total installed capacity of 50 MW, located approximately 15 kilometres off the coast of Aberdeen, Scotland.
The association is expected to promote the W1N wind farm project, which is still pending approval by the environmental authorities in Taiwan, as the limits of the project overlap a sailing channel through the Strait, although approval is expected sometime in 2018.
