Singapore’s Strategic Marine (S) Pte Ltd and Prosperous Wind Shipping Limited, an affiliate of Pacific Radiance which supports the offshore oil and gas and renewable energy sectors, have successfully delivered a cutting-edge vessel to support Taiwan’s Yunlin offshore wind farm.

This StratCat 27 hybrid-ready vessel is a winner of the “work boat world” awards for best medium windfarm support vessel in 2022. It was also awarded last year for its first parallel hybrid variant, as Strategic Marine reports.

The vessel, owned and operated by Prosperous Wind Shipping Limited, is designed for the transfer of technicians and cargo, essential for the construction, operation, and maintenance of offshore wind farms.

Set to start operations at the Yunlin offshore wind farm in April 2024, this vessel marks a pivotal advancement in Taiwan’s renewable energy landscape, with the Yunlin project boasting an estimated contract value of around $3m.

The vessel will operate round the clock, facilitating the transit of personnel, equipment, and cargo between the selected harbour, the installation vessel, and throughout the wind farm, thereby ensuring seamless support for the project’s infrastructure development.
