Van Oord 💫 Wins Offshore Wind 💨 Contract in Taiwan

May 30, 2018 by gCaptain

Map shows the location of the Yunlin offshore wind farm.

Dutch marine contractor Van Oord announced on Wednesday that it has been selected as the preferred contractor for a large 640 MW offshore wind project in Taiwan.

The Yunlin offshore wind project is being developed by German wind developer wpd.

Van Oord is responsible for the design, manufacturing and installation of the wind farm’s eighty foundations, which will be constructed eight kilometers off the coast of Taiwan’s Yunlin prefecture. Work is expected to start immediately. 

Taiwan Emerging as Battleground to Expand Offshore Wind in Asia

Van Oord says the contract has a value of approximately EUR 500 million.

The Taiwanese government aims to install 5.5 GW of offshore wind projects by 2025.

The installation of the first foundations for the Yunlin project are expected to start in early 2020.

For Van Oord, the Yunlin project represents its first offshore wind project in Taiwan, as well as its first outside of Europe.

In Asia, and especially in Taiwan, large investments are being made in offshore wind. The Yunlin project is a great opportunity for Van Oord to show our expertise outside Europe. We look forward to working with our local partners to enable the energy transition of Taiwan,” commented CEO Pieter van Oord.
