Ørsted inks cable installation contract with Taiwan’s Woen-Jinn

Global offshore wind leader Ørsted has signed a construction contract with Taiwanese supplier partner Woen-Jinn Harbour Engineering (WJ) for Greater Changhua projects’ array cable installation.

The contract includes the provision to allow WJ to invest in a new-build cable laying vessel.

The contract with a value of NT$1 billion (US$32.5 million) requires WJ to install a significant scope of array cables and will secure substantial work for the projects to be constructed in 2021.

The special financial arrangement included allows WJ to invest in the state-of-the-art cable lay vessel WoenJinn#7.

Ørsted signed a memorandum of understanding with Woen-Jinn in November 2017, followed by several collaborative workshops on commercial, technical andQHSE topics, resulting in a signed letter of intent in May 2018.
