First Subsea, part of the First Tech Group based in Aberdeen, has secured a contract from Jan De Nul for the Cable Protection System (CPS) for the export and inter-array cables at the Formosa 2 offshore wind farm in Taiwan.
The wind farm will be developed as a joint venture between JERA, Macquarie Group Green Investment, and Swancor Renewable Energy.
Formosa 2 will consist of 47 turbines and is situated in the Strait of Taiwan, 40nm from the port of Taichung in Miaoli County.
Jan De Nul kicked off the construction of the wind farm early 2020, with subsea cables installation operations scheduled to start next year.
The order follows on from the successful cooperation with Jan De Nul for part of the export cable protection systems supplied for Formosa 1 Phase 2, which was executed and delivered last year.
The cable protection system has been designed to protect the cable during installation and during the operating lifespan of the wind farm, significantly reducing cable fatigue at the point of entry into the wind turbine offshore structures.
