CWind Taiwan scores survey contract for Taiwanese duo

In: Vessels
CWind Taiwan has been awarded a contract by Van Oord to charter a survey boat for the nearshore cable route survey of Ørsted’s Greater Changhua 1 and 2a offshore wind farm.

Starting this March, CWind Taiwan will use a Taiwanese-flagged survey boat,
Ocean Surveyor 3, to support Van Oord in conducting multibeam surveys of the wind farms. CWind Taiwan is refitting the vessel with a moon pool prior to project commencement.

Ethan Wang, Commercial Director of CWind Taiwan, said: “CWind Taiwan is actively supporting all the ongoing offshore wind farms in Taiwan with our survey services. We are delighted to contribute our extensive experience through our Taiwanese-flagged survey boats and local crew into assisting Van Oord’s project in Taiwan.”

Changhua 1 and 2a are located between 35 and 60 kilometres off the west coast of Changhua County, Taiwan and are being developed by Ørsted on behalf of project partners. They will consist of 111 Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-67 DD offshore wind turbines, each with a capacity of 8 MW. Expected to be operational in 2022, the wind farms will have a combined capacity of of approximately 900 MW, enough to supply around 1 million Taiwanese households with green power.
