The installation will be carried out by Heerema’s heavy lift vessel Aegir some 8km off the coast of Changhua county at a water depth of 18 to 28m.

Offshore work is expected to begin in March 2020, with completion planned for June the same year.

“This is our first contract in Taiwan, thus another major milestone. This Changhua project re-emphasizes Heerema’s commitment to operate in wind projects all over the world and strengthen our position in the Asian offshore wind market,” said Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of HMC.

The 109.2MW Changhua offshore wind farm is being developed by Taiwan Power Company (TPC) off the coast of Fangyuan.

Jan De Nul and Hitachi signed a contract with TPC last year for turnkey delivery of the project, including the manufacturing and installation of 21 Hitachi 5.2MW turbines and five-year O&M services.
