Wind Energy – Taiwan
Yesterday the launching of the first-ever bespoke Taiwan-flagged Service Operations Vessel took place.
The SOV, informally named TSS Pioneer, is being built for Ørsted’s Greater Changua offshore wind farms and will be delivered in 2022 to provide Taiwanese O&M technicians a safer working environment and ensure optimal performance of the wind farms.
The vessel, along with the O&M base at Port of Taichung, signifies Ørsted’s long-term commitment to Taiwan, as we have a unique build-to-operate business model!
The SOV is being built by Vard at its Vung Tau shipyard in Vietnam, from where it will be delivered early next year to Ta San Shang Marine, a joint company owned by MOL and Ta Tong Marine.
