LOC Renewables, through its naval architectural design and engineering team, Longitude Engineering, has been contracted to undertake a month-long feasibility study on behalf of Taiwanese subsea cable installer, Woen Jinn Harbor Engineering.
The agreement will see the Longitude team assess a cable lay barge for Woen Jinn and advise on the specifications and conversion work required to fit the barge for offshore wind operations. In addition to better quantifying the scope of conversion work required to prepare Woen Jinn’s cable installation barge, the WJ#5, for the offshore wind market, Longitude will provide ongoing support during the barge’s operation life. Longitude is also working with Woen Jinn to determine its role as owners’ engineer, during the necessary design engineering to convert the cable lay barge to a fit-for-purpose vessel.
