Prior to forming Enterprize Energy in 2009, its founder Ian Hatton earned his spurs in various energy development projects across the globe. Most notably, Mr Hatton established Eclipse Energy which was responsible for the Ormonde offshore wind farm, the first of its kind in the East Irish Sea, UK. The 150-MW plant was sold along with Eclipse Energy to Swedish utility provider Vattenfall.
In 2012, Enterprize Energy started research on a new ambitious offshore wind project in the Taiwan Strait, which has some of the highest wind speeds in the world. They founded Taiwan-based subsidiary Yushan Energy, named after Taiwan's highest mountain. In collaboration with the Canadian offshore wind construction firm Northland Power, Yushan Energy began developing the Hai Long wind farm in the Changhua Sea. When completed in 2022, the project is expected to feed 500 MW into Taiwan's national energy mix.
Yushan Energy is also developing Hai Long 3, a second offshore wind farm in the Taiwan Strait with a projected capacity of 500 MW. Construction is scheduled to commence in 2022.
