TECO to construct Hai Long onshore substation

Hai Long Offshore Wind Project and TECO Electric & Machinery Co., Ltd. have signed a preferred supplier agreement for an onshore substation with an installed capacity of 1,044 MW.

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

TECO's scope as EPC Contractor covers civil and electromechanical engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the onshore substation. The three wind farms' grid connection is expected to start successively from 2024. The onshore station will allow the integration of power generated across all three sites.

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

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