Singapore-based PSA Marine (Pte) Ltd and its Taiwanese partner Ta Tong Marine Group have formed a joint venture company, Ventus Marine Co Ltd, to service a long-term contract awarded by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy for the Formosa 1 offshore windfarm in Taiwan.
Ventus Marine will work with Njord Offshore, an established provider of crew transfer vessels (CTVs) for operations in Taiwan.
The charter commenced on 1 November 2019 and is served by a 26m CTV Ventus Beigang.
The vessel can carry 12 passengers and is registered under the Taiwan flag and has obtained Bureau Veritas and CR classifications.
The CTV is fully manned by Taiwanese crew who have undergone on-the-job training conducted in Europe and Taiwan by Njord Offshore’s masters.
