Marlinks has secured its first major contract in Taiwan. The project involves the cable health monitoring of the export and inter array cables of the 1044 MW Hai Long wind farm (made up of
Hai Long 2A, Hai Long 2B and Hai Long 3), a flagship project for the East Asian region. This announcement follows Marlinks' recent project award announcement in the United States.

The contract awarded covers the design, supply, installation, commissioning of monitoring hardware, and ongoing provision of integrity monitoring services, including Depth of Burial, RTTR, DAS monitoring and Termination Monitoring.

The Hai Long wind farm is located up to 50 kilometres offshore with water depths up to 55 metres. Marlinks is well positioned to deliver the necessary cable health monitoring services, leveraging its global expertise in the field with projects in Europe, East Asia and the United States.

Tim Kittelhake, CEO of the Hai Long Project, said: "Hai Long is very much looking forward to delivering this key project in Taiwan, utilizing Marlinks’ experience in continuous cable health monitoring works. We are happy to select Marlinks as our partner and are confident that through the cooperation, we can ensure the project’s cables are well protected and performance optimized during O&M period."

Roel Vanthillo, co-founder and CEO, of Marlinks, echoed this sentiment, adding: "We can only encourage Hai Long's choice to select a complete cable health monitoring package, covering not only services based on temperature monitoring but also on vibration monitoring. We look forward to working with the Hai Long project team on monitoring its cables in these challenging sea conditions to ensure the power cables’ integrity remains intact throughout its operational lifetime."

As Marlinks continues to invest in the East Asian market, it is opening a branch office in Taiwan in 2023 after having set up a representative office in 2022. The company's success in securing the Hai Long project highlights its position as a global provider of subsea cable integrity monitoring services and its commitment to driving innovation in the industry.
