TECO Electric & Machinery, a Taiwanese engineering business, has won an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for a substation at Taiwan’s Hai Long offshore wind farm. For the 1.04 GW offshore project, the business will construct an onshore substation and deliver any associated equipment and onshore cables.
The Hai Long Offshore Wind project is being developed jointly by Northland Power, Yushan Energy and Mitsui & Co. The offshore wind facility will power more than a million homes once it is operational and will be Taiwan’s largest offshore wind project altogether. The largest installed capacity in Taiwan’s offshore wind industry will be provided by the onshore substation constructed by TECO.
In October 2022, Siemens Gamesa signed a turbine supply agreement as well as service and availability agreements with Taiwan’s Hai Long offshore wind project. The agreement incorporated three offshore wind projects with a total capacity of 1.04 GW. These include the 512 MW Hai Long 3 project as well as the 300 MW and 232 MW capacity Hai Long 2A and Hai Long 2B projects.
