Heerema to Install Foundations for Taiwanese Offshore Wind Farms

Heerema Marine Contractors has secured foundation installation contract from Ørsted for the 900MW Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind farms in Taiwan.

The Greater Changhua offshore wind projects consist of four sites in the Taiwan Strait. Danish offshore wind developer Ørsted obtained site exclusivity on four offshore wind sites with a planned total generation capacity of 2.4GW, and was in 2018 awarded capacity for two projects of 900MW and 920MW.

Heerema’s contract scope entails the transport and installation of 111 turbine foundations as well as the installation of two large offshore substations.

Furthermore, Heerema will also be responsible for onshore marshalling services as well as the seabed preparations and scour protection.

The installation will be executed by Heerema’s fast sailing heavy lift vessel ‘Aegir’, that is already in the area for another project.

Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO, said: “Heerema is very excited to participate in this large and unique project. Heerema has got what it takes to be a leader in the renewables market: great vessels and highly skilled and experienced people that are always eager to co-operate. The collaboration between Ørsted and Heerema is characterized by a mutually outstanding attitude towards this enormous project. We share the same mentality: it’s this engagement and mindset of people that enables us to plan and execute these complex operations. We will continue to participate in ambitious and sustainable projects like Greater Changhua.”

Heerema will execute the offshore work on Greater Changhua 1 and 2a during 2021 and 2022, while complying with relevant local regulations in relation to supporting vessels and crews.
