Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C Start Working on Feng Miao Offshore Substation

The consortium consisting of Semco Maritime and PTSC Mechanical & Construction (PTSC M&C) has been awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for a 500 MW offshore substation in the Feng Miao (Fengmiao) offshore wind farm project in Taiwan.

Owned and developed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), the Feng Miao wind farm is located approximately 36 kilometres off the coast of Taichung City on the Taiwanese west coast and has been awarded 500 MW grid capacity by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs with expected commissioning by 2027.

”Feng Miao is CIP’s first project in Taiwan to feature an offshore substation. We are very pleased to cooperate with experienced partners such as Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C,” Claire Lohan, CEO of CIP Taiwan Round 3 projects, said.

”An offshore substation is an integral part of an offshore wind farm. By signing this EPC contract, we have taken a big step in the development process of the Feng Miao project and have once again demonstrated our commitment and confidence to complete the project in 2027 as scheduled.”

The contract for the offshore substation includes design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning and is effective from early October 2023 with the parties immediately initiating the execution phase for the project.

All structures for this project will be fabricated at PTSC M&C’s yard in Vungtau City, Vietnam, and Semco Maritime will design, procure, and install high and medium voltage, SCADA, and auxiliary systems supported by primary sub-contractor ISC Consulting Engineers. The contract duration is scheduled in the 2023-2026 period.

”Feng Miao is an exciting project representing a great opportunity for our consortium to further build on our joint experience from the Taiwanese Hai Long project, while simultaneously strengthening ties with the world-class team from Copenhagen Offshore Partners with a solid track record of leading offshore project development in Taiwan since 2017. We look forward to contributing to the continued development of the Taiwanese offshore wind industry in the coming years,” said Vice President Renewables, Semco Maritime, Frank Holm.

This is the third offshore substation project awarded to the Semco Maritime-PTSC M&C Consortium since the first collaboration in the Hai Long project, recently followed by the Baltica 02 project. Both projects are ongoing and progressing according to plan.

”Once again, we are honored to accompany our partner Semco Maritime in this offshore substation project. This project shall also help extend our portfolio in the renewable energy sector and we are proud to contribute to the global energy transition trends,” said Dong Xuan Thang, PTSC M&C’s Managing Director.

As reported earlier last year in Offshore Energy – Offshore Wind premium issue, the Feng Miao offshore wind farm, planned for the waters off Taichung City, is being developed to have an installed capacity of 1,800 MW.

The offshore wind farm would feature turbines of between 9 MW and 20 MW, comprising a minimum of 90 and a maximum of 187 units, depending on which turbine output is ultimately used.

The wind turbines would be installed on top of three- or four-legged jacket foundations.

In November 2022, CIP signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C to accelerate the development of offshore wind projects and the supply chain in Vietnam.
