Denmark's Orsted <ORSTED.CO> said on Wednesday that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co <2330.TW> has agreed to buy the entire power production from its third offshore wind farm in the Asian country.

Under what Orsted called "the largest-ever contract of its kind within renewable energy", TSMC will for 20 years buy 920 megawatts of power from the Greater Changhua 2b & 4, when the offshore wind farm project is scheduled to be finalised by 2025 or 2026.
