Sembcorp Marine (SembMarine) said that its unit Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms (SMOP) has entered the "highly competitive" offshore wind project (OWP) sector in Taiwan.
SMOP has landed a contract with Jan De Nul to fabricate 15 jacket foundations for the Formosa 2 Offshore Wind Farm, said a press release.
Located 4km offshore Miaoli County in the Taiwan Strait, the 376MW Formosa 2 facility will be Taiwan’s largest offshore wind farm, generating sufficient electricity for over 380,000 households when it starts operation in late 2021.
“The partnership with Jan De Nul on Formosa 2 represents our first exploit in the highly competitive Taiwanese offshore wind sector,” said Sembcorp Marine Head of Offshore Platforms Mr Samuel Wong.
“This is an important opportunity to extend our engineering solutions into the Asian offshore renewable energy markets.” Sembcorp Marine will deliver the Formosa 2 jacket foundations to Jan De Nul by December 2020.
