TAIPEI, February 7, 2022 – Sapura Energy has issued a termination notice to Yunneng Wind Power Company for transportation and installation of monopiles at the 640-MW Yunlin offshore wind farm, the Malaysian integrated energy company announced on Friday.

The contract was signed in March 2019 and works were expected to be completed by September 2020, which was changed to September 2023 due to operational issues allegedly not attributed to the company.


Sapura Energy installed the first of the eighty planned monopiles at the facility in December 2020.

Completion of the work to date and cost of the contract was not announced.

Yunneng Wind Power is a joint venture between Germany’s WPD and Thailand’s Electricity Generating Public Company with 25% stakes each and Total Energies with 23% stake and a Japanese consortium with the remaining 27% stake.
