JFMS opens Taiwan base to support renewables
James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has opened a new regional support base in Taipei, Taiwan, to support the country’s transition to renewable energy.
JFMS, part of James Fisher and Sons plc, has delivered integrated marine solutions to multiple UK wind farms including East Anglia ONE, London Array and Galloper. Expanding into the rapidly scaling Asia-Pacific market, JFMS will offer this experience to the 5.5GW offshore wind farm projects set for construction off the coast of Taiwan.
Fergus Graham, executive director at James Fisher and Sons plc, said: “The fact that we are opening up a support base in Taiwan demonstrates our commitment to the offshore wind sector, our willingness to invest in it and our plan to support some of the largest developers and asset owners in the industry.
“In doing so, we are looking forward to supporting the local supply chain, sharing best practice and developing local talent by providing new skills and training opportunities.”
JFMS has already supported de-burial and cable trenching projects in Taiwan, meaning it already has MFE equipment positioned in the country ready for mobilisation. It now plans to build a local team and establish itself as an experienced member of the local supply chain, offering the breadth of services within the James Fisher group through a single interface to reduce the costs and risks linked with managing complex projects.
The company will underscore its commitment to the region by initially recruiting local service technicians to train in the UK alongside personnel in roles of specialised expertise.
