SeaPlanner, SeaRoc Group’s marine management system, has been selected to support the construction of the Yunlin offshore wind farm in Taiwan.
SeaRoc said that the agreement is part of its strategic partnership with Mercuries Data System (MDS), which is contracted to deliver communications and marine coordination software and hardware for the 640MW project.
SeaPlanner will be used by the construction project team to coordinate all personnel and marine logistics for the wind farm located approximately 8km off the coast of Yunlin County.
“SeaPlanner is currently employed on a significant percentage of the world’s offshore wind turbines and we are pleased to extend our coverage and support MDS on this milestone project,” said Steve Pears Managing Director of SeaPlanner.
According to SeaRoc, SeaPlanner provides an integrated solution for managing safety and efficiency on the project, including inductions, personnel certification management, vessel and personnel tracking, all viewable from an interactive map of the project site.
Yunlin will consist of 80 Siemens Gamesa turbines of the 8MW class. The 640MW offshore wind project reached financial close at the end of May and is scheduled for completion by December 2021.
