Greater Changhua projects’ first 900MW will support the development of a strong local supply chain. We will continue to share our expertise in offshore wind and to support local companies to evaluate their competence and capacity.”In the next two months, Ørsted will invite tenders for an EPC contract for the first onshore substation. The appointed EPC contractor will source mainly from local builders and suppliers to deliver the construction.Subject to obtaining all necessary permits and taking final investment decision, Ørsted will start onshore construction for the projects next year.The offshore wind giant has also urged international turbine suppliers to accelerate their localisation actions, since will be an important factor for Ørsted’s final turbine supplier selection.Namely, the company has called the turbine suppliers to provide clear action plans to further localise turbine sub-components (apart from turbine towers) while working with local suppliers through either local manufacturing or assembly facilities in Taiwan.last_img read more
