CTCI MAC transition pieces ready for Yunlin

In: Windfarms

CTCI Machinery Corporation (CTCI MAC) has completed a substantial number of transition pieces ready to be loaded out to
Yunlin offshore wind farm in Taiwan, developed and operated by the German-based wpd AG. A delivery ceremony for these was held today (29th July).

The first batch of transition pieces is set to be loaded out on a barge by wpd early August from CTCI MAC’s Ta-Lin Shop in Kaohsiung to the offshore site for installation. The rest will be delivered in batches throughout this year.

Once completed in 2021,
Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm will become the largest single offshore wind farm in the Asia-Pacific. It is also one of the early offshore wind farms in Taiwan with locally-sourced components.

It is to be constructed 8 km from the coast in the Taiwan strait, with a total installed capacity of 640 MW. It will feature 80 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines. The first half of the turbines will be commissioned by 2020 and the other half in 2021. The purpose of this project is to alleviate power shortages resulting from the scheduled shutdown of several nuclear power plants.
It is expected to power up to 640,000 households in Taiwan annually.

CTCI MAC is a subsidiary of one of Taiwan’s largest turnkey contractor CTCI. The company is now an important foundations supplier for offshore wind farm projects in Taiwan. Apart from supplying transition pieces, CTCI MAC recently secured separate contracts with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and China Steel Power Corporation to supply nearly 300 pin piles to
ChangFang, Xidao and Zhong Neng offshore wind farms.
