Hai Long Offshore Wind (OFW) project signed Taiwan’s first large-scale balance of plant (BOP) preferred supplier agreement (PSA) with local company CSBC DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE).
The Hai Long Project consists of Canadian-based independent power producer Northland Power International (NPI), Yushan Energy and Mitsui, who have joined forces to develop the Hai Long 2 and 3 wind farms in zones 18 and 19 offshore Changhua.
CDWE is a joint venture between CSBC Corporation, Taiwan and DEME Offshore.
Today’s agreement with CDWE is for the BOP package of the Hai Long project and includes the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the foundations, inter array cables, export cables and transportation and installation of the turbines.
Offshore installation works should kick off at the beginning of 2023 optimising local materials and skills in constructing the Hai Long 2 and 3 OWFs.
