Transfer vessel long term charter
Njord Offshore will be managing a new purpose built 35-metre Service Accommodation and Transfer Vessel on long term charter to Siemens Gamesa for Formosa 1 offshore wind power plant in Taiwan.
Siemens Gamesa will have 22 of its offshore wind turbines installed in the Formosa 1 offshore wind power plant when completed: two units of the SWT-4.0-130 wind turbine, and 20 units of the SWT-6.0-154 wind turbine. The wind park is located about six kilometres off the west coast of Miaoli County.
The SATV will be operated from the port of Taichung for the operations and maintenance phase of the wind power plant commencing in the fourth quarter of 2019. The vessel is capable of staying offshore for at least seven days and offers 12 single cabins for the industrial personnel.
Njord Offshore is a leading crew transfer vessel operator for offshore wind in Europe with a fleet of 17 crew transfer vessels and had successfully performed more than 370,000 transfers since 2013. The company has established track record with key developers, turbine manufacturers and EPC companies across more than 30 offshore wind farms in the North Sea, Baltic Sea and Irish Sea.
