JDR’s second offshore wind contract for Taiwan
TAIWAN POWER COMPANY OFFSHORE WINDFARM PHASE 1 PROJECT – DEMONSTRATION PROJECT
The project is located off the coast of Fangyuan, in the Changhua County in Central Taiwan. It is being developed by TPC with a consortium of Jan De Nul n.v. and Hitachi Ltd as the project’s main contractor.
Phase One will see the installation and commissioning of twenty one 5.2MW offshore wind turbines giving a total capacity of approximately 110MW.
JDR was contracted by Jan De Nul to design and manufacture 63km of 33kV Cu 630mm2 inter-array and export cables to transmit power from the wind turbines to the shore. The 33kV cables will be manufactured at JDR’s state-of-the-art facility in Hartlepool, UK, supported by its group facility in Bydgoszcz, Poland, before being shipped to Taiwan for installation by Jan De Nul.
The Greater Changhua offshore wind projects are planned to be developed on four sites in the Taiwan Strait, from 35km to 60km off the Coast of Changhua County, Taiwan.
Upon completion in 2023, the four wind projects are expected to comprise the biggest wind-power complex in Taiwan. With a planned total generation capacity of 2.4GW – enough to provide renewable energy to approximately 2.8 million households in the country.
