On the 21st October 2019 a Preferred Supplier Agreement was signed with CSBC DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) for the Balance of Plant (BOP) scope of the first 300MW of the total 1044 MW Hai Long offshore wind farm in Taiwan.

Under the BOP package, CDWE will be responsible for the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) of foundations, inter-array and export cables, and transportation and installation of turbines and OSS.

By securing the PSA with CDWE, parties will be able to jointly develop the project and optimise the use of the local supply chain in Taiwan. Offshore installation works are expected to begin in 2023.

BLIX Consultancy supported in the winning bid for the Hai Long project and has continued to support with BOP Package Management, Contract Management and expertise for amongst other the Site Investigation Campaigns, Interface Management and Supplier Audits. We are looking forward to continue our support in developing this beautiful and challenging project.
