Jumbo about to kick off monopile removal campaign at Taiwanese offshore wind farm

Jumbo Offshore reported that it will start with a monopile removal campaign at the Yunlin offshore wind farm in Taiwan in the coming days.

Jumbo Offshore was awarded the contract by the developer of the Yunlin offshore wind farm Yunneng Wind Power Co., Ltd, a joint project company involving Skyborn Renewables, TotalEnergies, Electricity Generating Public Company (EGCO) and Sojitz Corporation, earlier this year.

The 640 MW wind farm is located in the Taiwan Strait between 8 to 17km off Taiwan’s west coast and will comprise 80 wind turbine generators installed at water depths of between 8 and 35m. Under the contract, some monopiles, which were installed during an earlier project phase, are to be removed approximately 3m below mean seabed level.

To undertake this scope, Jumbo Offshore will mobilise the DP2 Heavy Lift Crane Vessel Fairplayer. The company said in an earlier press release that it would outfit the vessel with an underwater abrasive cutting and lifting tool supplied by Claxton Engineering Services Ltd. as well as an ROV. With these, the Fairplayer will remove the monopiles in several sections. These will then be lifted into the vessel’s 1,400m2 cargo hold for transportation to a local Taiwanese port, where the vessel will offload the monopile sections to the quayside.
