CWind Taiwan announced today that it has been awarded two Crew Transfer Vessel charters for Formosa 1 wind farm by FOWI and Jan de Nul respectively.
The Formosa 1 project, Taiwan’s first offshore wind farm, is located approximately 2-6 km from shore of Miaoli in the Taiwan Strait. Phase 1 has operated commercially since 2017, with a capacity of 8 MW. While phase 2 is due to be installed during 2019 with a capacity of 120 MW.
After a successful first three years of performance since 2015, CWind Taiwan and the Taiwan-flagged Ocean Surveyor 3 has been extended by 90 days by FOWI, in support of ongoing phase 1 maintenance requirements.
Aiming to deliver Formosa 1 phase 2 by the end of the year, Jan De Nul have contracted CWind Taiwan’s CWind Phantom, a 27m CTV on charter, supporting their construction of Formosa 1 Phase 2 starting this June.
Increasing their fleet of Taiwan-flagged CTVs, CWind Taiwan is currently shipping CWind Phantom from Europe and will re-flag as a commitment toward industry localisation.
