Fred. Olsen Windcarrier Win Transport and Installation Contract with CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering in Taiwan
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Brave Tern has been awarded a contract by CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering in Taiwan. After finishing installations on Yunlin offshore wind farm, Brave Tern will commence the transportation and installation of the MHI Vestas Offshore V174-9.5MW wind turbines selected for the Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farms (CFXD).
The project is divided into two phases across 2022 and 2023.
CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering says:“As both experienced contractors within the industry, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier and CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) will share and combine their extensive knowledge base and experience to deliver a ´state of the art’ performance to Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and to the Taiwanese offshore wind industry. The experience and driving position of CDWE in the Taiwanese Marine Engineering industry shall complement the professionalism of Fred. Olsen Windcarrier and conduct the Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farms to a successful completion.”
“We are very pleased that the set-up of CDWE and a Fred. Olsen Windcarrier vessel has fulfilled the Taiwanese government’s turbine installation localisation requirements. Having CDWE as Changfang and Xidao Project’s turbine T&I contractor with Fred. Olsen Windcarrier supplying the vessel adds substantial experience into our construction operations,” says Jesper Holst, CEO of CIP’s Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farms.
“We are extremely proud to win another transport and installation job in the growing Taiwanese offshore wind market. CFXD is an important project for us and will strengthen our position and commitment to the growing Taiwanese market and the APAC region in general. Last year Fred. Olsen Ocean opened an office in Taiwan to bring the group’s extensive experience from Europe to the region. First step will be in April when Brave Tern heads towards Taiwan. We look forward to growing the local capabilities and the Taiwanese supply chain as well as supporting our customers in the region”, says Casper Toft, CCO, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier.
