Located off the coast of Changhua in central Taiwan, the multi-billion TWD wind farm project will see 186 PPs to be installed by CTCI MAC among the 62 wind turbines--the largest number of PPs to be manufactured by a single contractor in Taiwan to date, helping to generate up to 600 MW of power once operations begin in 2022

Following a successful contract award for an offshore wind turbine transition pieces’ project in 2019, CTCI MAC, a subsidiary of CTCI--the largest EPC turnkey project services contractor in Taiwan, has announced that it has secured “Changfang and Xidao (CFXD) Offshore Wind Farm Pin Pile (PP) Supply Agreement” with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP). This contract award further solidifies CTCI’s position in the offshore wind power sector.
Located off the coast of Changhua in central Taiwan, the multi-billion TWD wind farm project will see 186 PPs to be installed with manufactured by CTCI MAC for 62 wind turbines the largest number of PPs to be manufactured by a single contractor in Taiwan to date, helping to generate up to 600 MW of power once operations begin in 2022. This is equivalent to an annual power consumption of 600,000 households.
The Denmark-based CIP, which is responsible for the development, construction, and operation of the CFXD Project, is one of the global leaders in the offshore wind sector.
To ensure production and delivery on time, CTCI MAC has already begun sourcing subcomponents and preparing machines and tools since this February. Formal production will commence by this August, with manufactured PPs to be delivered in batches in July 2021. To facilitate the transportation of PPs from Kaohsiung Port to the project site off Changhua, CTCI MAC has set up CTCI MAC Ta-Lin Shop in Nansing Free Trade Zone in Kaohsiung, southern Taiwan.
CTCI MAC has 40 years of experience in manufacturing pressure vessels, and has obtained both European certifications EN 1090 (EU Steel Structure Certification) and ISO 3834 (Welding Quality Management System Certification) since November 2017. By demonstrating its professional production and management capabilities pertaining to production planning, quality control, HSE (Health, Safety, and Environmental protection) and shipping, CTCI MAC is a preferred partner for wind power developers.
Taiwanese government has been carrying out offshore wind power localization policy that aims for 5.5 GW power generating capacity by the year 2025. In addition to supporting the government’s offshore wind power policies, CTCI has been actively engaging in the power development and plant constructions for other kinds of renewable energies or efficient energies, such as solar, biomass, and natural gas. In the long run, CTCI will help to provide clean energy with low- or even zero-carbon emissions as well as stable power supply.
