The Feng Miao OWF Project is located approximately 36 kilometres off the coast of Taichung city on the Taiwanese west coast and has been awarded 500 MW grid capacity by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs with expected commissioning by 2027.
The contract for the offshore substation includes design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning and is effective from early October 2023 with the parties immediately initiating the execution phase for the project. All structures for this project will be fabricated at PTSC M&C’s yard in Vungtau City (Vietnam) and Semco Maritime will design, procure, and install high and medium voltage, SCADA and auxiliary systems supported by primary sub-contractor ISC Consulting Engineers. The contract duration is scheduled in the 2023-2026 period.
“Feng Miao is an exciting project representing a great opportunity for our consortium to further build on our joint experience from the Taiwanese Hai Long project, while simultaneously strengthening ties with the world-class team from Copenhagen Offshore Partners with a solid track record of leading offshore project development in Taiwan since 2017. We look forward to contributing to the continued development of the Taiwanese offshore wind industry in the coming years,” says Vice President Renewables, Semco Maritime, Frank Holm.
“Once again, we are honored to accompany our partner Semco Maritime in this offshore substation project. This project shall also help extend our portfolio in the renewable energy sector and we are proud to contribute to the global energy transition trends,” says Mr. Dong Xuan Thang, PTSC M&C’s Managing Director.
“Feng Miao is CIP's first project in Taiwan to feature an offshore substation. We are very pleased to cooperate with experienced partners such as Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C,” Claire Lohan, CEO of CIP Taiwan Round 3 projects, said. “An offshore substation is an integral part of an offshore wind farm. By signing this EPC contract, we have taken a big step in the development process of the Feng Miao project and have once again demonstrated our commitment and confidence to complete the project in 2027 as scheduled."
This is the third offshore substation project awarded to the Semco Maritime-PTSC M&C Consortium since the first collaboration in the Hai Long OWF Project recently followed by the Baltica 02 project. Both projects are on-going and progressing according to plan.
