Specialist Marine Consultants (SMC), Maxmart Shipping and China Marine Surveyors & Sworn Measurers (CMS) have teamed up to provide integrated solutions to the Taiwanese offshore wind industry.
The three companies have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreeing to collaborate on the upcoming operations in the offshore wind sector in Taiwan. The MOU will see the partnership offer a range of services, including marine consultancy, marine coordination and logistics, vessel inspection, offshore technicians, client representatives and training services.
The partnership will allow project developers to maximise project efficiency and to work to the highest safety standards, whilst building essential skill-sets by providing both theoretical and practical knowledge to local communities and businesses alike. The partnership is committed to maximising opportunities for people within the region and the delivery of industry specific training is core to achieving this. It is SMC’s ambition to train and work with local people to assist in developing the Taiwanese market, alongside the company’s key partners, Maxmart Shipping and CMS.”
According to SMC, the partnership’s strength lies in SMC bringing its experience gained through working within the offshore wind industry in Europe, Taiwan and China, and CMS and Maxmart Shipping’s comprehensive insight into the Taiwanese market, where the two companies have been active for decades with Maxmart Shipping providing professional brokerage services and CMS delivering a range of offshore surveying services.
The proficiency of Maxmart Shipping and China Marine Surveyors within the region’s marine sector will further strengthen the partnership’s capabilities and will prove greatly beneficial in establishing and providing local content across projects, SMC pointed out.
