CDWE, a joint venture between CSBC Corporation, Taiwan and DEME Offshore, signed an exclusive capacity agreement with CSBC Corp to supply pin piles for the 300MW HaiLong 2A offshore wind farm project.
As the number one shipbuilder in Taiwan, CSBC has a proven track record in manufacturing complicated steel constructions and coating solutions. In January 2020, CSBC launched its ‘smart pin pile production line’, which enables the company to efficiently fabricate the steel piles with precision accuracy.
The Hai Long wind farm is approximately 50 kilometres from the Taiwanese coastline and the depth of the foundations will be a maximum of 55 m. The foundations used by Hai Long are being specifically tailored to the characteristics of Taiwan’s seabed and wind farm conditions. CSBC’s expertise in steel fabrication will ensure that the pin piles meet the high standards and requirements needed for offshore wind farm construction.
The Hai Long offshore wind project will be developed in three stages with each stage involving a separate grid allocation.
The three development phases of the wind farm include Hai Long 2A (300MW), Hai Long 2B (232MW) and Hai Long 3 (512MW).
