May 13 (Renewables Now) - Singapore’s Keppel FELS Ltd has won a contract from Danish energy major Ørsted A/S (CPH:ORSTED) to build two 600-MW substations for Taiwanese offshore wind farms.

The unit of Keppel Corp’s (SGX:BN4) offshore and marine infrastructure business will pocket more than SGD 150 million (USD 109.6m/EUR 97.6m) for the engineering, procurement, construction, testing and commissioning of the substations, it said Sunday. The scope of the contract does not include some electrical components which will be supplied by Ørsted.

The two substations will be set up in Ørsted’s Greater Changhua offshore wind sites in Taiwan. Keppel is expected to complete the work in the third quarter of 2021.
