CDWE & CSBC sign exclusivity capacity agreement, reserving opportunity to supply pin piles for 300MW Hai Long 2A project


CDWE(台船環海),  a joint venture between CSBC Corporation, Taiwan and DEME Offshore, signed an exclusivity capacity agreement with CSBC Corp (台船) to supply pin piles for 300MW HaiLong 2A offshore wind farm project.


CDWE has CDWE made its final investment decision on “Green Jade”, the first Taiwan-built multi-functional installation vessel for offshore wind.  The heavy-lifting vessel will feature a high-tech, 4000-tonne capacity crane and DP3 capability, which will be delivered in 2022 and be deployed for Hai Long offshore wind farms, marking an important milestone for the localization of Taiwan’s offshore wind industry.  


Shipbuilder CSBC has a “proven track record in manufacturing complicated steel constructions and coating solutions”.


In January 2020, CSBC launched its “smart pin pile production line”, which enables the company to efficiently fabricate the steel piles with precision accuracy.


The Hai Long wind farm is approximately 50km from the Taiwanese coastline and the depth of the foundations will be a maximum of 55 metres.


The foundations used by Hai Long are being “specifically tailored” to the characteristics of Taiwan’s seabed and wind farm conditions.


The Hai Long offshore wind project signed Taiwan’s first large-scale balance of plant, preferred supplier agreement with CDWE in October 2019.


CDWE CEO Hedwig Vanlishout said: “As the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contractor for the Hai Long offshore wind farm, we aimed to select the best qualified fabricator which is most beneficial for this complex and challenging project.


At the same time, we are fulfilling our promise to the government concerning the development and optimisation of local content in Taiwan’s offshore wind industry, together with Hai Long.


“We are delighted to be partnering CSBC again and we’re confident that we can provide excellent, locally fabricated pin piles to our client given CSBC’s impressive performance history and its new dedicated pin pile production line.”


The Hai Long project partners, comprising Northland Power, Yushan Energy and Mitsui & Co, have recently been granted approval of their Industrial Relevant Plan (IRP), which is fully in line with the government’s local content requirements.
