Subsea 7’s renewables and heavy lifting business unit, Seaway Offshore Cables (SOC), has secured a contract from YunNen Wind Power Company for the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm project offshore Taiwan.
The scope of the contract includes the supply and installation of the export and inner array grid cable system.
In addition to the submarine cable installation works, SOC will also provide the pre-installation of horizontal drilling conduits, submarine cable route surveys, post lay trenching, termination and testing services.
Offshore activities are planned for execution in 2020.
“Along with the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project, this is the second supply and installation contract that SOC has been awarded since being acquired by Subsea 7, both of which are located outside of Europe showing how this sector is becoming increasingly global. Combining Asian and European project teams will ensure the transfer of knowledge and assist in developing local capabilities in offshore wind development,” said Steph McNeill, Subsea 7’s senior vice president for renewables and heavy lifting.
