Fuchuan Investment orders SOV at Mawei Shipbuilding

Fujian Fuchuan Investment, the investment unit of Fujian Shipbuilding Industry, has placed an order at Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding for the construction of a service operations vessel (SOV).

The vessel will be used to support the operation and maintenances of offshore wind farms, with China Development Bank providing financing support for the new order. The price of the contract were not disclosed.

In January, Fujian Shipbuilding Industry established a joint venture, Fujian Offshore Wind Power Operation and Service Company, with Fujian Yongfan Wind Power Technology to tap into the offshore wind farm service sector.

In August 2016, Fuchuan Investment also ordered five wind farm maintenance vessels at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding.
