Hai Long Offshore Wind Project has awarded a consortium consisting of Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C a Preferred Supplier Agreement for two offshore substations for the Hai Long offshore wind farms.

Semco Maritime will lead the consortium with PTSC M&C and cooperate closely with ISC Consulting Engineers as the primary sub-contractor on the project for Hai Long Offshore Wind Project.

The consortium and ISC Consulting Engineers will execute the project from Q4 2021 with offshore installation planned in 2024 and completion of commissioning in 2026. The contract includes design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the two offshore substations including jackets, which will be manufactured at PTSC M&C’s yard facilities in Vungtau, a port city in south Vietnam.

“We are very pleased that the parties behind Hai Long Offshore Wind Project have awarded us this strategically important order. The order provides us with a solid footprint in the exciting Asian offshore wind market, which is developing at a fast pace. We look forward to working on the exciting Hai Long projects and the strategic cooperation with our consortium partner PTSC M&C and the other sub-contractors,”
said Vice President Renewables, Semco Maritime, Frank Holm.

Felipe Montero, Project Director of Hai Long, said: “With Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C as preferred suppliers for our offshore substations, we’re certain we’ve found the best possible partners for delivering a hugely important part of our Hai Long projects. The signature of this Preferred Supplier Agreement is another key milestone for Hai Long on the way to Financial Close and into construction and we’re delighted with it and very much looking forward to the journey that we now begin with Semco Maritime and PTSC M&C.”

The Hai Long project is a proposed project located 50-70 km from the shore in the Taiwan Strait. It spans three sites off Taiwan:
Hai Long 2A (300 MW), Hai Long 2B (232 MW) and Hai Long 3 (512 MW).

Project construction is due to be completed by 2026. The three sites are being developed by Canadian independent power producer Northland Power International (NPI), Yushan Energy Pte Ltd and Mitsui.

Siemens Gamesa has been named preferred supplier for the project. Each
SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbine will have a capacity of 14 MW and feature a rotor diameter of 222 metres using 108-metre-long Siemens Gamesa IntegralBlades.
