Van Oord Wins Cable Install Work

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Van Oord said it has been awarded the contract by Ørsted for the cable installation works at the Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind farms located between 35 and 60 kilometers off the west coast of Changhua County, Taiwan.

Van Oord is responsible for the transportation, installation and burial of the 111 inter array cables, with a total length of approximately 135 kilometers, and the three export cables, with a total of approximately 145 kilometers. To carry out the work, Van Oord will deploy its cable-laying vessel Nexus, equipped with a cable carousel with a capacity of 5,000 metric tons. Van Oord’s own trencher Dig-It will bury the cables to the required depth. The installation work starts in 2021.

The 900 MW Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind farms will be the first cable project in Taiwan for Van Oord.

Once operational in 2022, the wind farms will contribute to the Taiwanese government’s target of 5.7 GW offshore wind by 2025.
