CDWE, a joint venture of DEME Offshore and Taiwanese shipbuilder CSBC, had signed the early works agreement in April 2020.

‘Green Jade’ will be built at CSBC in Kaohsiung and is set for delivery in 2022, highlighting CDWE’s ambitions to support development of the offshore wind industry in Taiwan and the wider Asia Pacific region.

With its 4,000-tonne crane capacity, DP3 capability and green features, the vessel is equipped to transport and install the next generation of foundations and giant multi-megawatt wind turbines in a cost-effective way.

‘Green Jade’ will be deployed for both the Hai Long Offshore Wind Project and at Zhong Neng for Zhong Neng Wind Power Corporation Preparatory Office.
