The first batch of 26 pin piles was loaded on the transportation vessel BBC Onyx at EEW SPC’s facilities in South Korea and offloaded in the Formosa 2 marshalling port of Taichung in Taiwan.
The company subcontracted EEW SPC for the supply of all 194 pin piles. It started fabrication in January at three different yards in South Korea and Malaysia. This first pile delivery is one of eight batches in total assigned to BBC Chartering.
All the pin piles will be stored in Taichung Port until foundation installation starts later this year.
Developed by Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, JERA and Swancor Renewable Energy Company Ltd., Formosa 2 will have 47 Siemens 8-MW turbines on jacket foundations in up to 55 m (180 ft) water depth. The wind farm will be located between 4 and 10 nautical miles off Miaoli County.
