Havfram Joins Yunlin Construction Team

International subsea and offshore wind contractor Havfram will provide Project Management and Owners Engineer Services within the foundation installation package for the Yunlin wind farm offshore Taiwan.

The contract was awarded by Yunneng Wind Power, the owner and developer of the 640 MW project.

Located in the Taiwan Strait, the Yunlin offshore wind farm comprises 80 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines installed on monopile foundations ranging between 970t and 1800t in weight and 65m to 95m in length.

Havfram’s team in Aberdeen will provide personnel contracted to Yunlin Wind Power, who will be integrated into the overall project team and will assist with the Project Management, Engineering & Logistics planning associated with onshore and offshore activities throughout 2022.

”Securing this work is another step towards achieving Havfram’s ambition to be a global leading company in the energy transition from offshore oil and gas services into the offshore wind industry,” said Odd Strømsnes, CEO of Havfram.

”Our team in Aberdeen is highly experienced in the successful delivery of complex subsea and marine projects – expertise and competence that we can readily transfer into the offshore wind market.”

National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) will install the remaining monopiles on the Yunlin wind farm, replacing Sapura Energy which abandoned the project earlier this year, citing delays in the execution as the main reason.
