LOC wins Jieyang Shenquan 1 offshore windfarm contract
LOC has won a contract to provide Marine Warranty Services to support the development of the Jieyang Shenquan 1 OWF, located in the South Sea area of Shenquan Town, Jieyang City, in Southern China.
Under the terms of the agreement, LOC China will provide document review, marine assurance and on-site inspections for all critical marine operations. The scope of work will also include inspections of the proposed support fleet as well as risk assessment and management meetings ahead of critical marine operations.
The Jieyang Shenquan 1 OWF is owned by State Power Investment Group, one of mainland China’s major electricity generation companies, and Guangdong Electric Power Co. Ltd, a company involved in the 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 windfarm will consist of 73 wind turbines of 5.5MW each, with a total installed capacity of 400MW. The project will also involve the building of an offshore booster station, which will be connected to the turbines through 16 circuits of submarine cable. Work on the project is expected to commence in August 2020.
Winning the Jieyang Shenquan 1 OWF contract underlines LOC China’s expertise in the Chinese renewables’ market and comes on the back of its expanded footprint.
Li Shixi, Risk & Renewable Manager at LOC China, said:
“Winning a further recent contract, for the development of offshore wind farms in China, is a demonstration of our experience and knowledge of the sector, as well as our understating of the Chinese market, as we celebrate our 15th anniversary in the country. It is also a reflection of the growth of the renewables sector in South-East Asia, with an increasing number of projects across the region”.
