    Jumbo awarded transportation & installation contract for Yunlin WTG foundations offshore Taiwan

    Jumbo is proud to announce the contract award for the transportation and installation of wind turbine generator (WTG) substructures at the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) in Taiwan.

    Jumbo was awarded the contract earlier this year by Yunneng Windpower Co., a Taiwanese subsidiary of wpd AG. Jumbo’s scope comprises the transportation of 40 monopiles, 120 monopile sections and 40 transition pieces (TP’s), as well as the offshore installation of 80 TP’s.

    Preparation and planning works have already begun, with the first transportation commencing in Q4 2019, and installation scheduled to take place in mid-2020.

    The 640 MW Yunlin offshore wind project is the first large multi megawatt offshore wind project in Taiwan. It will be developed 8km off the Taiwanese west coast and will consist of 80 turbines of the 8MW class provided by Siemens Gamesa.

    Jumbo will use their K-class and J-class vessels as well as other third-party HLVs and deck carriers for shipping the monopiles, sections and TP’s. They will use their J-class vessels with DP2 capabilities for the installation of the TP’s.
