A business unit that is part of Subsea 7’s renewables and heavy lifting division is to install the cables for a Taiwanese offshore windfarm.
Subsea 7 said the contract, which will see it install the export cable and inter array cables, was awarded to its Seaway Offshore Cables (SOC) business unit.
The deal for the work on the Yunlin offshore windfarm was awarded by YunNeng Wind Power Company, part of the wpd group.
The offshore windfarm is located approximately 8 km off the coast of Yunlin County in the Taiwan Strait on the west coast of Taiwan and will consist of 80 wind turbine generators each with a capacity of 8 MW.
In addition to the submarine cable installation works, SOC will also provide the pre-installation of horizontal drilling conduits, submarine cable route surveys, post-lay trenching, termination and testing services.
Associated materials will be provided including submarine composite cables and cable protection systems.
Project engineering will commence immediately from SOC offices in Leer, Germany and Taipei, Taiwan. Offshore activities are planned for execution in 2020.
