Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm Project
In 2018 Seaway7 was awarded the contract for the turnkey engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning (EPIC) works related to the inner array grid and export cable system of the Offshore Wind Farm Yunlin project. The offshore wind farm Yunlin is located approx. 8 km off the coast of Yunlin County within the Taiwan Strait on the west coast of Taiwan. The OWF consists of 80 wind turbine generators, each with a capacity of 8 MW and is based on an inner-array grid and export cable system of 81 66 kV aluminium core submarine composite cables with a total length of up to 272 km.
The offshore works commenced in 2021 with HDD tunnels to prepare cable pull-in to shore, and in 2022 cable lay for the first large offshore windfarm in Taiwan started, with final export cable being laid in October 2023. In 2024 the installation of the submarine cable system will continue by utilising dedicated in-house resources such as Cable Lay Vessel Seaway Aimery and Installation Support Vessel Seaway Moxie.
