All Foundations In at Zhong Neng Wind Farm Offshore Taiwan

The final jacket foundation has been installed at the 298 MW Zhong Neng offshore wind farm in Taiwan, according to a social media post by Joris Hol, CEO of Zhong Neng and Fengmiao phase I Offshore Wind Farm at Copenhagen Offshore Partners.

The Zhong Neng offshore wind farm, being built by a joint venture between Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and China Steel Corporation (CSC), features 31 jacket foundations, with the first unit installed at the offshore site some 13 kilometres off the Changhua County in August 2023.

The jacket foundations were supplied by CSC’s subsidiary Sing Da Marine Structures.

The developers selected CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) for the transportation and installation of the 31 jacket foundations and the accompanying pin piles.

The foundation installation work was carried out by Green Jade, the first Taiwan-built offshore wind installation vessel.

The offshore construction on the project started in March with the installation of pin piles for the jacket foundations, for which CDWE deployed DEME’s Apollo vessel.

The Zhong Neng offshore wind farm will comprise 31 Vestas V174-9.6 MW turbines, all of which are scheduled to be in operation in 2024.

CDWE has also been selected for the transportation and installation of the wind turbines at the Taiwanese project.
