CDWE has been selected by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) to transport and install foundations for the 500 MW Fengmiao 1 offshore wind project. The deal marks the first foundation installation contract signed in Taiwan’s offshore wind 3.1 zonal development.

Following a past successful collaboration in the Changfang and Xidao project and the Zhong Neng wind farm, CDWE will work again with CIP and deploy its heavy-lift marine installation vessel Green Jade for the foundation installation work.

At the beginning of June, CIP placed an order with the South Korean company SK oceanplant for the jacket foundations that will be installed at the offshore wind farm.

The construction of the 500 MW Fengmiao 1 is planned to commence in 2025 and the offshore wind farm is expected to enter into commercial operation in 2027.

The project, being developed by Copenhagen Offshore Partners (COP) on behalf of CIP, will comprise 15 MW offshore wind turbines and will be CIP’s first offshore wind farm in Taiwan to feature an offshore substation.
