Seajacks has conditionally been awarded a contract with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) for the transport and installation of wind turbines at the Formosa 2 offshore wind farm.
Formosa 2, developed by Macquarie Capital and Swancor Renewable Energy, will consist of 47 SG 8.0 – 167 offshore wind turbines. Installation is scheduled for the summer of 2021 and Seajacks is planning to mobilise Seajacks Scylla, the world’s most capable installation jack up, to Asia Pacific to execute this work.
The contract is subject to SGRE receiving the firm order from consortium partners Macquarie Capital and Swancor Renewable Energy.
Seajacks Scylla will be the second Seajacks vessel to be deployed to the Asia Pacific region. The sister vessel, Seajacks Zaratan, is already in Taiwan and contracted to SGRE for the installation of 20 SG 6.0-154 turbines at the Formosa 1 Phase 2 wind farm.
