Taiwanese quartet form offshore wind services venture

Four of Taiwan’s largest maritime companies are joining forces to tap into the island’s fast developing offshore wind sector.

Shipowners Yang Ming and Taiwan Navigation along with shipbuilder CSBC and the island’s port body, Taiwan International Port Corp, have signed a memorandum of understanding to provide shipping and maintenance services for the offshore wind sector.

The quartet said they might look to expand their services overseas in the future.

In December 2017, shipyard CSBC, keen for new business, entered into a joint venture agreement with marine engineering firm GeoSea, a unit of Belgium’s DEME, to develop business together in the offshore wind market.
