LOC secures offshore wind work in China
International marine and engineering consulting firm LOC has won a contract to provide Marine Warranty Services to support the development of the Jieyang Shenquan 1 offshore wind farm in China.
The wind farm is located in the South Sea area of Shenquan Town, Jieyand City, 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 wind farm is owned by State Power Investment Group and Guangdong Electric Power.
The wind farm will consist of 73 wind turbines of 5.5 MW each, with a total installed capacity of 400 MW.
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.
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.”
