Damen Shipyards Group has delivered two Fast Crew Suppliers (FCS) 2710 to Hung Hua Construction in Taiwan.
The vessels, named Falcon No. 5 and Falcon No. 6, join two other Damen FCS 2710 vessels and an FCS 2610 in the company’s fleet.
Like the previous vessels, Falcon No. 5 and Falcon No. 6, will be operated by Dong Fang Offshore (DFO), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hung Hua Construction. The vessels serve the local offshore wind industry currently being developed in Taiwan.
“We are pleased to see Falcon No. 5 and Falcon No. 6 joining our fleet at the beginning of 2021. Throughout 2020, the FCS 2710 has proven its workability and efficiency on the west coast of Taiwan during rough sea conditions. We hope to continue to capitalise on this advantage as we are confident that we will gain a strong foothold in this segment” stated Polin Chen, DFO’s Operations Director.
Damen sales director Asia Pacific, Michiel Hendrikx, said: “It’s good to see these two vessels joining the Hung Hua Construction fleet. We see this repeat order as confirmation of the FCS designs’ capability to meet market requirements. We see strong potential for growth in the region, with numerous projects planned in Taiwanese and Asian waters in the coming years.”
