LS Cable & System secures Hai Long cable work

LS Cable & System has been named preferred bidder for a KRW 200 billion submarine cable project by CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) for the Hai Long offshore wind farm.

As a result, LS Cable & System won the right to supply all the extra-high voltage submarine cables for the project which have been ordered so far. The total order amount is about KRW 800 billion.

LS Cable & System is also continuing its investment to pre-empt the global market by announcing an additional capital investment to the tune of about KRW 190 billion in its business site in Donghae City, Gangwon-do.

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

The 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.
