POSH Kerry wins 1st Taiwan offshore wind contract

Freshly set up joint venture focused on the Taiwan offshore wind sector, POSH Kerry Renewables (POSH Kerry), has secured its first contract in the rapidly developing market.

POSH Kerry will provide anchor handling, supply and standby support to an international geotechnical services operator during the site survey, installation and construction of an offshore wind farm. The scope of work will begin off the coast of Guanyin and potentially include other sites in Yunlin and Taoyuan-HsinChu. Work is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2018. Neither scale of work in terms of number of vessels to be deployed nor financial details were disclosed.

The Taiwan-based integrated solutions provider which is a joint venture between offshore marine services provider PACC Offshore Services Holdings (POSH) and Taiwan-based logistics firm Kerry TJ Logistics (Kerry TJ), also recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with local marine and towage company Seagreen Enterprise (Seagreen).

This strategic partnership not only further broadens POSH Kerry’s service portfolio, but also supports the Taiwan government’s goal of building up local offshore marine capabilities through the exchange of knowledge and best practices. POSH operates a young and diverse fleet of over 100 offshore vessels.

Under the partnership, Seagreen will be able to leverage POSH’s extensive track record in executing complex offshore marine projects to enhance its operational know-how. Both POSH Kerry and Seagreen will also embark on joint initiatives to recruit, train and build up a pipeline of Taiwanese crew.
