DNV has signed a $17.7 million contract to become the ‘Owner’s Engineer’ for Changhua Phase II wind farm in Taiwan.
It is the largest offshore wind farm being developed solely by Taiwan Power Company (Taipower).
The work scope lasting into the second half of 2025 will see DNV support project engineering reviews and marine coordination during wind farm construction. The scope over the project life cycle right through to commissioning includes design review, fabrication assurance, and construction assurance.
Detailed design of the 31-turbine project is due this year, with the wind farm scheduled to be online by autumn 2025. DNV will work in close partnership with Taiwan-based engineering consultancy GIBSIN Engineers, sharing best practice and knowledge.
“This win is a great example of why we decided to merge the expertise of DNV’s energy and oil and gas organizations. It makes us uniquely positioned to support both offshore project engineering activities and marine coordination work, thereby ensuring smooth project implementation. Our broad expertise helped secure what is the largest-ever offshore engineering project for the power and renewables side of DNV.”Brice Le Gallo, regional director for APAC, Energy Systems at DNV.
