Star Energy, 100% owned by TCC, will be responsible for all onshore deliverables regarding design, procurement, construction and commissioning of onshore substation. Star Energy will sign contracts with local sub-suppliers approved by Ørsted and these contracts will create around 800 to 1,000 local jobs.
