Seaway Offshore Cables Nets Yunlin Deal

Seaway Offshore Cables (SOC) has won a substantial contract for the supply and installation of the export and inter-array grid cable systems at the Yunlin offshore wind farm in Taiwan.

SOC, an entitiy in Subsea 7’s Renewables and Heavy Lifting Business Unit, will also provide the pre-installation of horizontal drilling conduits, submarine cable route surveys, post-lay trenching, as well as termination and testing services.

The associated materials will be provided including the supply of submarine composite cables and cable protection systems, the company said.

Project engineering will commence immediately from SOC’s offices in Leer, Germany, and Taipei, Taiwan, with offshore activities planned in 2020.

“Along with the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project, this is the second supply and installation contract that SOC has been awarded since being acquired by Subsea 7, both of which are located outside of Europe showing how this sector is becoming increasingly global,” said Steph McNeill, Subsea 7 Senior Vice President Renewables and Heavy Lifting.

“Combining Asian and European project teams will ensure the transfer of knowledge and assist in developing local capabilities in offshore wind development.”

The Yunlin offshore wind farm comprises 80 8MW turbines of which half will be commissioned by 2020 and the remainder the year after.

The 640MW project is being developed by the wpd group some 8km off the coast of the Yunlin County within the Taiwan Strait.
