Wind energy – Taiwan
Keppel O&M has completed the construction of two offshore substations for Ørsted which will be deployed in Taiwan’s Greater Changhua 1 & 2a Offshore Wind Farms.
The detailed engineering, procurement, and construction for the two unmanned offshore wind farm 600MW substations, which comprise the topside modules and jacket foundations, was completed with a perfect safety record.
The topside modules, which have a combined weight of more than 8000MT, are expected to sail away in late October 2021 to be integrated with the jacket foundations on site standing in the Taiwan Straits. Keppel O&M completed the construction of the jacket foundations earlier in Q2 2021 and will be undertaking the integration work for the offshore substations. When operational, the Greater Changhua 1 & 2a will be Taiwan’s first far shore and large-scale offshore wind farms.
