Subsea 7 has announced the award of a substantial contract to Seaway Offshore Cables (SOC), an entity in Subsea 7ís Renewables and Heavy Lifting Business Unit, for the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm project by YunNen Wind Power Company, a company of the wpd group, for the supply and installation of the export and inner array grid cable system.

The Yunlin offshore wind farm is located approx. 8km off the coast of Yunlin County within the Taiwan Strait on the west coast of Taiwan and comprises 80 wind turbine generators each with a capacity of 8 megawatt. In addition to the submarine cable installation works, SOC will also provide the pre-installation of horizontal drilling conduits, submarine cable route surveys, post lay trenching, termination and testing services. Associated materials will be provided including the supply of submarine composite cables and cable protection systems.

Project engineering will commence immediately from SOC offices in Leer, Germany and Taipei, Taiwan. Offshore activities are planned for execution in 2020.

Steph McNeill, Subsea 7 Senior Vice President Renewables and Heavy Lifting, said: 'Along with the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project, this is the second supply and installation contract that SOC has been awarded since being acquired by Subsea 7, both of which are located outside of Europe showing how this sector is becoming increasingly global. Combining Asian and European project teams will ensure the transfer of knowledge and assist in developing local capabilities in offshore wind development.'
