Fred. Olsen secures CFXD contract

CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering has contracted Fred. Olsen Windcarrier for the transport and installation of wind turbines for the Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farms (CFXD) in Taiwan.

The project is divided into two phases that will take place from 2022-23. When complete, the CFXD offshore wind farms will be located 11-25 km west of Taiwan and comprise 62 MHI Vestas V174-9.5 MW turbines.

For the project, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier will utilise its jack-up vessel Brave Tern, which will soon commence work on the Yunlin offshore wind farm, also in Taiwan.

Casper Toft, chief commercial officer at Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, said: “We are extremely proud to win another transport and installation job in the growing Taiwanese offshore wind market. CFXD is an important project for us and will strengthen our position and commitment to the growing Taiwanese market and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region in general.”

Last year, Fred. Olsen Ocean opened a branch office in Taipei to support the growing offshore wind business in Taiwan and the broader APAC region, as HLPFI reported here.
