Miaoli, Taiwan, Nov. 12 (Jiji Press)--A ceremony to mark the completion of an offshore wind farm in Taiwan partly funded by Japan's Jera Co. was held on Tuesday in Miaoli in northwestern Taiwan.

Formosa 1, the first offshore commercial wind farm in Taiwan with a total output of 128,000 kilowatts, is expected to start full-fledged operations shortly.

At the ceremony, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen said that Taiwan will make all-out efforts to realize the goal of increasing the share of renewable energy generation to 20 pct in 2025.

Tsai called for maintaining efforts to make Taiwan the center of renewable energy efforts in Asia.

Under its policy to abandon nuclear power generation by 2025, Taiwan aims to build wind farms that generate a total of 5.7 million kilowatts by the year.
