Woen-Jinn to invest in new cable lay vessel for Orsted contract

Taiwan’s Woen-Jinn Habour Engineering has signed a major offshore cable installation contract with Danish energy firm Orsted.

Under the NTD1bn ($32.5m) contract, Woen-Jinn will install a significant amount of array cables for the Greater Changhua wind farm project to be construction in 2021.

Woen-Jinn will also invest in a new cable lay vessel for the project.

“We believe that this collaboration will not only bring more opportunities to Woen-Jinn in Taiwan, but it will also support our partner to become a competitive offshore wind cable installation supplier in Asia. We look forward to supporting more Taiwanese companies to develop competence and capability in offshore wind,” said Matthias Bausenwein, Ørsted’s general manager for Asia Pacific.

The Greater Changhua projects include four sites with a potential 2.4 gw capacity. Currently the poject is in the environmental impact assessment review stage.
