Heerema’s Aegir Completes Greater Changhua 1 & 2a Substation Topsides Lift for Ørsted
After nearly 2,000 days of hard work(from initial investigation in 2016), Ørsted has successfully installed the first offshore substation topsides for the Greater Changhua 1 & 2a Offshore Wind Farms, Taiwan’s first large scale and far-shore wind farms.
Together with their contractors – manufactured by Keppel and installed by Hereema – the teams demonstrated perseverance and overcame numerous challenges including lock-downs in Singapore during COVID-19.
This project marks the end of the transport and installation phase and leaving both offshore substations ready for the upcoming offshore commissioning phase before first power of the wind farm in 2022.
The Greater Changhua 1 & 2a Offshore Wind Farms are located 35-60 kilometers off the coast of Changhua County, has a capacity of approx. 900 MW, and will be capable of providing clean energy to one million households.
