VARD to build two construction/service vessels for wind work offshore Taiwan

Posted on May 15, 2024

An unnamed Taiwanese company has contracted VARD to design and build two offshore wind commissioning service operation vessels (CSOV), both of the new VARD 4 39 design.

These will operate both as a service vessel for the wind farms and for the offshore construction and installation phase.

Both will have a large external deck and a hull shape said to support fuel-efficient operations and future integration of a modular power and fiber-optic cable-lay and repair spread.

Other features of the design, according to VARD, are a machinery and propulsion optimized for station keeping, improved workability and operational reliability as well as a battery package to support electrification, a crane and a work-to-walk gangway system. The vessels will also be prepared to run on future fuels.

VARD’s subsidiary Seaonics will deliver the electric-controlled motion-compensated 30-m gangway, 3-ton 3D compensated crane and personnel elevator, and another 3D compensated 7-t crane for cargo handling.
