Semco Maritime, partners to develop Taiwanese offshore wind project

October 24, 2023

(WO) – Early October 2023, the consortium consisting of Semco Maritime and PTSC Mechanical & Construction, was awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for a 500MW offshore substation in the Feng Miao offshore wind farm project.

The Feng Miao offshore wind project is located approximately 36 km off the coast of Taichung City on the Taiwanese west coast and has been awarded 500 MW grid capacity by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs, with expected commissioning by 2027. The contract for the offshore substation includes design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning and is effective from early October 2023.

All structures for this project will be fabricated at PTSC M&C’s yard in Vungtau City (Vietnam). Semco Maritime will design, procure, and install high and medium voltage, SCADA and auxiliary systems supported by primary sub-contractor ISC Consulting Engineers.

“Feng Miao is an exciting project representing a great opportunity for our consortium to further build on our joint experience from the Taiwanese Hai Long project, while simultaneously strengthening ties with the world-class team from Copenhagen Offshore Partners with a solid track record of leading offshore project development in Taiwan since 2017. We look forward to contributing to the continued development of the Taiwanese offshore wind industry in the coming years,” says Vice President Renewables, Semco Maritime, Frank Holm.

This is the third offshore substation project awarded to the Semco Maritime-PTSC M&C Consortium since the first collaboration in the Hai Long OWF Project recently followed by the Baltica 02 project. Both projects are on-going and progressing according to plan.
