LS Cable & System announced on October 6th that the company was selected as a preferred bidder for a KRW200 billion submarine cable project by CDWE (CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering).
As a result, LS Cable & System won the right to supply all the extra-high voltage submarine cables for Taiwan’s phase2 offshore wind farm project, which have been ordered so far. The total order amount is about KRW800 billion.

We are confident that with the technical strength of LS Cable we can successfully overcome the particular conditions of the Taiwan region which require special attention to the design and manufacturing of the cables.”
