OEG Energy Signs Hai Long Marine Coordination Deal

OEG Energy Group (OEG) has revealed that Specialist Marine Consultants (SMC) and Fern Communications (Fern), both OEG Renewables businesses, have been contracted to deliver a turnkey marine coordination solution to the 1 GW Hai Long offshore wind farm in Taiwan.

The turnkey contract will be for the duration of the installation and commissioning works and will include the provision of a coordination team from the UK, and the development of a local Taiwanese team to manage the project marine coordination centre in the longer term.

This will be OEG Renewables’ 20th project in Taiwan, of which 15 have been marine coordination contracts, according to the company.

Located 45-70 kilometres off the Changhua coast in the Taiwan Straits, the Hai Long development will comprise two offshore wind farms that will be developed in three stages, with Hai Long 2 split into two phases: the Hai Long 2a and the Hai Long 2b. Hai Long 3 will have an installed capacity of 512 MW.

The 1,022 MW offshore wind project is being developed by Mitsui & Co., Yushan Energy, and Northland Power.

In September, the developers made the financial investment decision for the project which is expected to cost approximately CAD 9 billion (about EUR 6.3 billion).
