Semco Maritime has been selected by a joint venture between Canadian power producer Northland Power Inc. (NPI) and Taiwan-based Yushan Energy for an engineering study for the Hai Long offshore wind farm in the Changhua area in Taiwan.
The scope of the study comprises optimization of the electrical infrastructure hereunder electrical grid studies, assessment of number of offshore substations, sub-sea cable characteristics, design of preliminary offshore substation substructure and topside layout as well as onshore substation layout.
