The Belgium-based Sarens Group has established a venture in Taiwan to take part in the local offshore wind market.
Sarens in Taiwan will focus on maintaining a fleet of SPMTs, SGC-120s, SGC-90s, and CC-8800s, as well as providing onshore logistics for offshore projects.
The work scope includes barge transport, unloading and reloading of heavy parts, SPMT transport to temporary storage, JIT delivery to offshore site, logistics management, full operation scope and engineering.
As part of its strategy in the region, Sarens in Taiwan will at first hire employees from Southeast Asia, Europe and other regions, but will commit to training and hiring Taiwanese locals in the long-term.
According to the company, the newly-formed venture is positioned to make the most of the Taiwanese government’s positive policy on offshore wind.
To remind, this summer Taiwan allocated 5.5GW of offshore wind capacity to be developed by 2025, with around 75% of the selected projects located off the Changhua County.
