CWind Ltd on Thursday said it has secured a Balance of Plant (BOP) contract for the 128-MW Formosa 1 offshore wind complex located in Taiwanese waters.
As of September, CWind's local subsidiary is responsible for topside inspection and maintenance services to the 22 wind turbines installed across the two stages of the complex. The company will use the Nanliao fishing harbour as the maintenance hub and will utilise its crew transfer vessel Ocean Surveyor 3.
CWind previously provided crew transfer charters and marine surveys during the construction and maintenance phases of the wind complex.
The Formosa 1 wind farm was built in 8-MW and 120-MW stages.
Japan’s JERA Co owns a 32.5% stake in the project, in which it is partnering with Denmark’s Ørsted A/S (CPH:ORSTED), with a 35% stake, Macquarie Group Ltd (ASX:MQG) with 25% and Swancor Holding Co Ltd with 7.5%.
