Seajacks International has won a contract by Ørsted for the transport and installation of turbines at the Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind projects in Taiwan.
Seajacks is planning to use its jack-up vessel Seajacks Scylla for the transport and installation of 111 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines at the project site located 35-50km off the coast of Changhua County,
“Seajacks has developed an effective and cooperative working relationship with Ørsted over the past ten years, and we are looking forward to delivering this technically challenging project efficiently and safely,” said Sebastian Brooke, Seajacks COO.
“This contract is an important milestone for Seajacks and cements our commitment to Taiwan and the Asia Pacific region.”
The turbines at the 900MW Greater Changhua 1 and 2a will be mounted on jacket foundations, set to be transported and installed by Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC). Offshore construction is expected to commence in 2021.
To remind, this is Seajack’s third installation project in Taiwan, as its Seajacks Zaratan is currently installing turbines at the Formosa 1 Phase 2 wind farm and Seajacks Scylla will be mobilized to install turbines at the Formosa 2 project from 2021.
