After two years of negotiations, Hai Long Offshore Wind has received approval for its ‘Industrial Relevance Plan’ from the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA)’s Industrial Development Bureau (IDB).
Throughout the intense discussions and negotiations, the Hai Long team worked closely with the government and domestic and foreign suppliers to understand and fulfil the government’s local content requests.
The team is grateful for the directions given by MOEA, BOE, IDB, Metal Industries Research & Development Centre (MIRDC) as well as for the many hours of negotiation put in by partners CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) and Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy to achieve this milestone.
Along with CDWE and Siemens Gamesa, with whom Hai Long signed Preferred Supplier Agreements in 2019, Hai Long Hai Long will work to implement our Industrial Relevance Plan.
As the anchor project for positioning Taiwan as the Asia-Pacific Export Hub of the offshore wind industry, Hai Long has a deeply held commitment to helping Taiwan develop a sustainable offshore wind industry and establish a local supply chain.
Hai Long entered into Taiwan’s first large-scale Balance of Plant (BOP) Preferred Supplier Agreement with CDWE covering engineering, procurement, fabrication, and installation of the foundations, inter array cables, export cables and transportation and installation of the offshore substations and wind turbines.
On this basis, CDWE made its final investment decision on Green Jade, the first Taiwan-built multi-functional installation vessel for offshore wind. The heavy-lifting vessel will feature a high-tech, 4000-tonne capacity crane and DP3 capability, which will be delivered in 2022 and be deployed for Hai Long offshore wind farms, marking an important milestone for the localisation of Taiwan’s offshore wind industry.
Hai Long named Siemens Gamesa as preferred supplier to provide wind turbines and maintenance service for its 300MW Hai Long 2A offshore wind power plant.
