CDWE Wins Taiwanese OWF Gig
Taiwanese marine joint venture (JV) company CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) has signed two contracts for the transport and installation of foundations and turbines at the 300MW Zhong Neng offshore wind farm (OWF).
The JV between Taiwanese outfit CSBC and Belgian contractor DEME Offshore will aim to deliver the project, owned by China Steel Corporation (CSC), in 2024.
The 300 MW Zhong Neng offshore wind farm, developed by China Steel Corporation, is planned for completion in 2024. In order to implement the localisation policy required by the Taiwanese government, the Zhong Neng Wind Power Corporation Preparatory Office has worked closely with CDWE, with the aim of maximising local content. CSV will invest in local wind turbine component production and steel structure fabrication.
CDWE has signed a Preferred Bidder Agreement for the WTG transport and installation scope of CIP’s Changfang-Xidao offshore wind farm in May 2019. Recently CDWE also signed a Preferred Supplier Agreement with Hai Long Offshore Wind for a large-scale Balance of Plant (BOP) scope.
The two contracts signed today mark another milestone in CDWE’s strategy for business diversification and its role as a pioneer and driving force in the localisation of offshore wind developments, making further contributions to Taiwan’s renewable energy potential.
DEME Offshore is a global solutions provider in the offshore oil, gas and renewables industry. The company has an unmatched track record in the transport and installation of foundations, turbines, cables and substations for offshore wind farms.
