Keppel O&M finalises offshore substations for Ørsted

These stations are located in Taiwan’s Greater Changhua.

Keppel Offshore & Marine has completed the construction of two offshore substations for Ørsted.

These will be located in Taiwan’s Greater Changhua 1 and 2a Offshore Wind Farms. 

Engineering, procurement, and construction of the two unmanned offshore wind farm 600-megawatt substations were completed with a perfect safety record. 

The modules have a combined weight of more than 8,000 metric tons and are expected to sail away in late October 2021. These will be integrated with the jacket foundations standing in the Taiwan Straits. Keppel O&M will oversee the integration of these modules.

When completed, Greater Changhua 1 and 2a will be Taiwan’s first far shore and large-scale offshore wind farms.

Chris Ong, CEO, Keppel O&M, said that the completion of this project was a testament to the company’s engineering expertise. 

“We are pleased to support Ørsted’s first full-scale offshore wind project in Asia with two major offshore substations. Working in close collaboration with Ørsted, we were able to devise win-win solutions to work around the constraints caused by the pandemic to ensure the safe completion of the project. This is the seventh major project completed by Keppel O&M this year and is testament to our engineering expertise, execution excellence and how we have adapted our operations to manage the challenges posed by COVID-19.”
