Norway’s Solstad Offshore has inked an agreement with Orsted for the hire of a construction support vessel (CSV) to support its offshore wind farm projects in Taiwan.

The 2013-built CSV, Normand Jarl, will head to Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind farms in Taiwan during the second quarter of 2021.

The firm period for the contract is 15 months with options to extend the contract with five months plus additional one-month option.

“It is very encouraging, within a short time, to announce our second contract within offshore wind in Taiwan. Orsted is one of the main players in this industry and we are proud to have been selected as their partner on this project,” said Lars Peder Solstad, ceo of Solstad Offshore.

Last month, Solstad Offshore’s CSV Normand Baltic was awarded a contract with an EPIC contractor to support the development phase of an offshore wind farm project in Taiwan.
