Twin Damen Fast Crew Suppliers 2710 ordered by Hung Hua Construction Co. Ltd. of Taiwan
Hung Hua Construction of Taiwan has placed an order for two of Damen’s latest Fast Crew Supply Vessels, the FCS 2710. The contract was signed at the end of January and the vessels will be built at Damen Shipyards Singapore for delivery in early 2020.
With a government target of 5.5 gigawatts by the end of 2025 there is plenty of work to be done with ten sites off Taiwan’s west coast currently under development. Following its successful installation of the first offshore project in Taiwan; the Southern Weather Observation Tower for the Taiwan Power Company, HHC is now looking ahead to the next phase of its cooperation by supplying them with fast crew transfer and support services.
The two vessels for HHC will have some additional, small changes to meet the company’s specific demands as well as optimise them for local Taiwanese requirements and conditions.
“We are pleased to announce our order of two Damen FCS 2710 CTV vessels, which will be the latest and most state-of-the-art design of CTV in Asia,” added Mr. Polin Chen, assistant to the president at Hung Hua Construction. “Being the first private company to invest in offshore vessels in Taiwan, we, Hung Hua, are confident and determined to build up local capacity for Taiwan’s offshore wind industry.
We have full confidence in Damen’s impressive track record, quality and reliable services. That’s why we chose Damen, and soon we will be expanding our fleet by up to eight CTV vessels.
