Seaway7 and Dong Fang Offshore (DFO) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining their intention to collaborate in an exclusive manner and further strengthen their offering to the offshore wind market in Taiwan.
The collaboration will focus on developing a localised cable installation offering for the Taiwanese offshore wind projects. Seaway7 has been operating in Taiwan since 2017, and today employs more than 100 people between their office in Taipei and their marine operations base in Taichung. They will provide project management, engineering and installation knowledge. In Taiwan, Seaway7 is currently involved in four cable installation projects connecting more than 2.5GW to the Taiwan Electricity Grid. DFO, a fully Taiwanese organisation established in 2019, will contribute their local market knowledge, and their assets and marine operations expertise.
