Hai Long Offshore Wind Project has awarded the EPC contract to a consortium consisting of Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C for the two offshore substations for the Hai Long 2 and Hai Long 3 wind farms after naming the consortium a Preferred Supplier back in October 2021.
The Hai Long Offshore Wind Project will contribute to the realisation of the Taiwanese government’s ambition of reaching 5.5 GW installed offshore wind capacity and securing a leading position for Taiwan in offshore wind in East Asia. The Hai Long Offshore Wind Project, consisting of Hai Long 2 and Hai Long 3 wind farms in the Taiwan Strait around 50 kilometres off the coast, is jointly developed by Northland Power Inc., Yushan Energy Pte. Ltd., and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. with a total installed capacity of 1,044 MW.
After being awarded the Preferred Supplier Agreement in late 2021, the consortium led by Semco Maritime with PTSC M&C and supported by primary sub-contractor ISC Consulting Engineers now initiates the project execution by entering the EPC contract with Hai Long Offshore Wind Project. Following the EPC contract signing, the consortium will proceed with the detailed design, procurement, construction and commissioning of the two offshore substations, including jackets, which will be fabricated at PTSC M&C’s yard in Vungtau City, Southern Vietnam. The project is planned for offshore installation in 2024 and completion of commissioning in 2026.
“Our initial cooperation with the parties involved in the Hai Long Offshore Wind Project has been a true pleasure, and we are thrilled that the contract has been signed, enabling us to take the next steps on this journey with our consortium partner PTSC M&C and sub-contractors,” says Vice President Renewables, Semco Maritime, Frank Holm.
“PTSC M&C is proud and honoured to be part of the consortium contractor for Hai Long Project. This project marks an important milestone as well as a strategic breakthrough for PTSC M&C in renewable energy services. Myself, together with all PTSC M&C staff, pledge that we will always honour our obligations and ensure the success of this project,” says Mr. Dong Xuan Thang, PTSC M&C’s Managing Director.
Felipe Montero, Project Director of Hai Long, said: “As preferred suppliers for our offshore substations, Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C have proven that they are the best possible partners for delivering a hugely important part of our Hai Long projects, and we are pleased to have signed the EPC contract with them, which will allow us to continue making progress and reaching new milestones.”
