UK-based self-propelled jackup vessel specialist Seajacks International has been awarded a contract with Ørsted Taiwan for the transport and installation of wind turbine generators at the Greater Changhua 1 and Greater Changhua 2a projects in Taiwan.
Seajacks is planning to deploy Seajacks Scylla to execute the works.
This will be the third installation project for Seajacks in Taiwan. Seajacks Zaratan is currently installing wind turbines at Formosa 1 Phase 2 wind farm. Seajacks Scylla will be mobilised to the region to install wind turbines at the Formosa 2 wind farm from 2021.
“This contract is an important milestone for Seajacks and cements our commitment to Taiwan and the Asia Pacific region. Seajacks is pleased to be able to contribute its considerable knowledge and experience, as well as the most capable equipment, to developing these new markets and helping them meet ambitious targets for offshore wind,” said Sebastian Brooke, COO of Seajacks.
Ørsted is currently developing four offshore wind farms within the Greater Changhua site off Taiwan.
