Taiwan International Ports Corp. (TIPC) has launched Taiwan's first offshore wind crew transfer vessel (CTV) at the Port of Taichung in the Changhua County.

The TIPM 22601 is one of two CTVs ordered by TIPC Marine Corporation, a subsidiary of TIPC, at the compatriot Lung Teh Shipbuilding.

The vessel is 26 meters long, 9.8 meters wide, and can carry up to 12 wind technicians. It was built at a cost of TWD 125 million (approximately EUR 3.5 million).

According to TIPC, the launch of the CTV represents the first step towards the Taiwanese government's goal of promoting the localization of the offshore wind market, as well as the domestic shipbuilding industry.

The CTV was unveiled at an agreement signing ceremony between TIPC and the Changhua County Government for joint construction and development of an offshore wind operations and maintenance hub at the Taichung Port.

To remind, Taiwan has recently allocated 5.5GW of offshore wind capacity to be developed by 2025, with around 75% of the selected projects located off the Changhua County.
