In: Windfarms

Hai Long Offshore Wind has received approval for its “Industrial Relevance Plan” from the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA).  

The proposed 1,044 MW offshore project, to be developed 50km off the coast of Changhua county, will be developed in three stages,
Hai Long 2A, Hai Long 2B and Hai Long 3. Construction is expected to begin in 2023 and commissioning in 2025. The Hai Long Project is being developed by Canadian independent power producer Northland Power International (NPI), Yushan Energy Pte Ltd and Mitsui.

Hai Long Project Director Felipe Montero stated: “we are deeply gratified to have heard the great news and will work to meet the conditions in our Industrial Relevance Plan."

With approval in place, developers are continuing to work with the Taiwanese government, local suppliers and main contractors to delivery of the localisation plan.  

CSBC DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE), a joint venture between Taiwanese CSBC Corporation and Belgian marine contractor DEME Offshore, has been named preferred supplier for Balance of Plant. CDWE is following the construction of its new floating DP3 heavy lift vessel
Green Jade.The vessel is being built at CSBC in Kaohsiung and is set to be delivered in 2022. It will be deployed to support construction at Hai Long.

Siemens Gamesa scored a preferred supplier agreement for
Hai Long 2A last year. The  new turbine is also being considered for the rest of the 1,044 MW Hai Long pipeline. The SG 14-222 DD has a 14 MW capacity, reaching up to 15 MW with the company’s Power Boost function. It features a 222 metre diameter rotor, 108 metre long blades, and a 39,000 metre swept area. Siemens Gamesa plans to support the delivery of turbines using a nacelle assembly factory in Taichung harbour, which is being established to supply both the domestic offshore wind market and the APAC region.
