Ørsted has signed a contract with CSBC Corporation for the manufacture of wind turbine foundation pin piles for a Taiwanese offshore wind project.

CSBC will supply a significant number of foundation pin-piles for the first 900MW Greater Changhua projects.

This contract is the beginning of a partnership between CSBC and Ørsted as CSBC will be included as one of the preferred suppliers for Ørsted’s future wind farm projects to be built in 2025, the company noted.

Matthias Bausenwein, general manager for Ørsted Asia-Pacific, said: “We will use Ørsted designed jacket foundations which are tailored to meet the seabed conditions in Taiwan. Each foundation will be supported by three pin-piles that are driven into the seabed, forming a robust foundation structure to sustain the weight of the tower and wind turbine system. We are glad to have found a partner like CSBC, a company that has many years of experience in heavy industry and shipbuilding.” 

The offshore construction for the first 900MW Greater Changhua projects will take place in 2021.

For this contract, CSBC intends to invest in a new production line to manufacture the pin-piles. It will also utilize Kaohsiung Harbour as the heavy-lift terminal for the underwater pin piles assembly and temporary storage. Each of them will be up to 90 meters long and the total steel weight for the order is more than 20,000 tons.
