CWind Taiwan acquires CTVs from Seacat Services

CWind Taiwan, a joint venture between CWind and International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant (IOVTEC), has added two further 24 metre crew transfer vessels (CTVs) from Seacat Services to its fleet to fulfil its latest charter agreement with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE)

The two vessels will be chartered to support manufacturer SGRE during the development and construction of the 640 MW Yunlin offshore wind farm off the coast of Taiwan. Seacat Resolute and Seacat Vigilant are both class-certified South Catamarans that have conducted thousands of safe crew and equipment transfers for SGRE and other leading offshore wind firms in the European market.

The acquisition comes at a time of rapid expansion in the Taiwanese offshore wind sector, which in turn is driving demand for vessels proven to set the highest standards of safety and technical availability. Collaboration between key players in the vessel sector is increasingly important to effectively meet the demands of a discerning global offshore wind market – and this includes reassignment of high quality assets to where they are most needed.

“CWind Taiwan’s commitment is demonstrated throughout their operation, as is their versatility in delivering the support that we need to bring projects to fruition in Taiwan” said James Oxbrow, Head of Projects. “This has been evidenced by the recent additions to the fleet. Resolute and Vigilant have already been deployed on our European projects and we have full confidence that they will serve us well at Yunlin.”

“We pride ourselves on keeping our fleet in optimum condition through an ongoing refit and maintenance programme” added Ian Baylis, Managing Director at Seacat Services. “This means that we are able to confidently collaborate with our colleagues in the sector like CWind Taiwan, knowing that when our assets are handed over, they are quality assured to class standard.”

This latest agreement strengthens CWind Taiwan’s growing footprint in the Taiwanese offshore market, which is further bolstered by a wider array of turnkey solutions, including the provision of specialist wind farm technicians alongside a training school that supports local employment opportunities and ensures the highest levels of safety during offshore operations.
