INTERNATIONAL CONSULTANT COMMISSIONED FOR CHINESE OFFSHORE WIND FARM

Wednesday, May 13, 2020 

LOC has won a contract to provide Marine Warranty Services to support transport and installation operations for the development of the Jieyang II windfarm, consisting of 64 wind turbines, with an installed capacity of 350MW, and a 220kV offshore booster station.

Under the terms of the agreement, made with China Pacific Insurance Co (CPIC) of Shanghai, LOC China will provide document review and verification of all critical marine operations and procedures, including on-site attendance to approve procedures. The scope of work will include vessel suitability surveys to support the project for the duration of critical operations.

The windfarm is owned by State Power Investment Group, a Chinese electricity generating company, and Guangdong Electric Power, which is involved in investment, construction, operation and management of electric power projects, as well as the production and distribution of electric power, mainly in the Guangdong province of China. The turbines will be connected to the booster station through 16 circuits of 35kV submarine cable.

The project will be managed by the Company’s office in China, with support from other group offices. It follows nine previous offshore wind farm construction projects, for which LOC China has provided marine warranty survey services.

Shi Wenchao, MD of LOC China, said: “The Jieyang II windfarm is a major project win and our first post the coronavirus pandemic in China. We are delighted to have won this  contract and to be involved. LOC has a strong position in renewables, based on extensive experience and knowhow, which, combined with our understanding and presence in the Chinese market, put us in a good position to win the work and deliver on the project. We are looking forward to getting started and contributing towards the delivery of the Jieyang II windfarm”.
