Heerema Wins More Offshore Wind Work in Taiwan

Friday, August 9, 2019

Heerema Marine Contractors said it has won another contract to support offshore wind project development in Taiwan, this time in the middle of the country.

The Greater Changhua offshore wind projects consist of four sites in the Taiwan Strait, from 35 kilometers to 60 kilometers off the coast of Changhua County. Danish offshore wind developer Ørsted has obtained site exclusivity on four offshore wind sites with a planned total generation capacity of 2.4 gigawatts, and was in 2018 awarded capacity for two projects of 900 megawatts and 920 megawatts.

The contract for Heerema is for the 900 megawatts Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind farms. The contract scope entails the transport and installation of 111 turbine foundations as well as the installation of two large offshore substations, essential components of offshore wind farms that run electricity to the mainland. Furthermore, Heerema will also be responsible for onshore marshaling services as well as the seabed preparations and scour protection.

The installation will be executed by Heerema's fast sailing heavy lift vessel Aegir, that is already in the area for another project. The installation will take place in 30-35 meters water deep.

Heerema said it will execute the offshore work on Greater Changhua 1 and 2a during 2021 and 2022, while complying with relevant local regulations in relation to supporting vessels and crews.
