Ørsted Adds Acteon to Greater Changhua 2b & 4 Team

Pulse Structural Monitoring, a brand in marine energy and infrastructure services company Acteon, has signed a contract with Ørsted Taiwan to provide measurement and associated data acquisition systems for the Greater Changhua 2b and 4 offshore wind farms in Taiwan.

The company, which is part of Acteon’s Geo-services business line, will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, installation, and commissioning of measurement and associated data acquisition systems for the offshore wind projects.

The project-based systems integration and software development will be carried out at the Pulse Technology Centre in Wokingham, the UK, with installation to be executed in construction yards in South Korea and Taiwan.

“The Greater Changhua 2b and 4 contract represents another important step forward with the development of Pulse capabilities supporting the global offshore wind industry,” said Paul Smith, Executive Vice President of the Geo-services business line.

“These include campaigns to measure environmental, metocean, settlement, load and acceleration, corrosion, and anode efficiency. All our installations are built on the open framework NX2 digital platform which integrates synchronous data acquisition from sensor to desktop.”

Located 35-60 kilometres off the coast of Changhua County, the offshore wind farms entered the construction stage in March 2023 after Ørsted took the final investment decision on the 920 MW projects.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2025.

In 2018, Ørsted secured 920 MW of grid capacity for the offshore wind farms in Taiwan’s first competitive price-based auction with no mandatory local content requirements. Two years later, the developer signed a corporate power purchase agreement (CPPA) with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) for the offtake of the full production from Changhua 2b and 4.

Ørsted also owns and operates the 900 MW Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind project, which was officially inaugurated in April at an event in the Port of Taichung, Taiwan.
