Boskalis orders new crane vessel for Taiwan offshore wind contract

Royal Boskalis Westminster and its Taiwanese partner Hwa Chi Construction have been awarded the foundation scope for the Taiwanese Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farm (CFXD OWF) project owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

The contract workscope includes the transportation and installation of 62 three-legged jacket foundations and the accompanying 186 pin piles. Execution is scheduled for 2021-2023, and the value is somewhere in the EUR150m to EUR300m range,

The project will be the first for the new Bokalift 2 crane vessel, which will be built from the conversion of an existing hull.

“The Bokalift 2 will be a flexible value adding asset, well positioned for the installation of current and future generation offshore wind turbine foundations as well as oil and gas structures in addition to serving the decommissioning and salvage market,” the company stated.
