Home » Jumbo Offshore awarded scope expansion contract for the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm

Jumbo Offshore has recently been awarded a contract by Yunneng Wind Power Co., Ltd. (YWPC) for the removal of monopiles at the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm. The contract award represents an expansion of the company’s existing scope, which has involved transport and installation of the project’s transition pieces.

Under the contract, some monopiles, which were installed during an earlier project phase, are to be removed approximately 3m below mean seabed level. To undertake this scope, Jumbo Offshore will mobilise the DP2 Heavy Lift Crane Vessel Fairplayer.

The vessel will be outfitted with an underwater abrasive cutting and lifting tool supplied by Claxton Engineering Services Ltd. as well as an ROV. With these, the Fairplayer will remove the monopiles in several sections. These will then be lifted into the vessel’s 1,400m2 cargo hold for transportation to a local Taiwanese port, where the vessel will offload the monopile sections to the quayside.

Milad Sheikhi, Head of Sales and Business Development at Jumbo Offshore said, “We have been active on the Yunlin OWF project since 2021, carrying out transport and installation of transition pieces and will continue to perform this role in 2024. Being awarded this additional scope shows trust in our performance, project management, engineering and installation capabilities, for which are very grateful to our client.”

Brian Boutkan, Manager Commerce at Jumbo Offshore, added, “We are very proud to have been awarded this additional scope of work on the Yunlin OWF project. We see this as a confirmation that Jumbo’s values bring real benefit to our clients. With our client-centric approach, we aim to cooperate with our customers as a partner in all that we do, in order to offer a reliable service that inspires confidence.”

The Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm is developed by Yunneng Wind Power Co., Ltd., a joint project company involving Skyborn Renewables, TotalEnergies, Electricity Generating Public Company (EGCO) and Sojitz Corporation. Located in the Taiwan Strait between 8 to 17km off Taiwan’s west coast, the 82km2 offshore wind farm will comprise 80 wind turbine generators installed at water depths of between 8 and 35m. Once completed, the 640 MW project will be one of the largest offshore wind farms in Taiwan, producing enough clean energy to serve the energy needs of more than 600,000 Taiwanese households.
