July 15 (Renewables Now) - Korean industrial firm LS Cable & System on Friday said it has won a contract to deliver submarine cables for the 900-MW Greater Changhua offshore project in Taiwanese waters.

The order, the value of which was not provided, is for the Changhua 1 and 2a wind complex in western Taiwan, owned by Danish power company Ørsted A/S (CPH:ORSTED). It calls for LS Cable & System to supply the submarine power cables for the project by 2021.

To be located off Taiwan’s Changhua County, the Changhua 1 and 2a sites will feature Siemens Gamesa 8.0-167 DD turbines and are expected to enter offshore construction in 2021. Once up and running, the wind power plants will be able to generate enough electricity for around 1 million homes. Their output will be sold under a power purchase agreement (PPA) with domestic utility Taipower, which was signed at the end of January.
