Australian Firm Clinches Offshore Wind Contracts in Taiwan

Australian marine services provider MMA Offshore has secured three new contracts in the offshore wind market in Taiwan.

These three contracts, with firm periods totalling 270 days, increase MMA Offshore’s contracted revenue by an aggregate total of approximately AUD 7 million (EUR 4.5 million). The contracts also provide for additional option periods totalling 118 days.

Three of MMA’s vessels will mobilise to Taiwan to provide a range of offshore wind farm support services.

The multi-purpose support vessel MMA Pride will provide accommodation and walk-to-work services supporting turbine works at the Changhua wind farm.

The anchor handling tug supply vessel MMA Crystal will support a pre-installation noise mitigation survey for the Formosa 2 wind farm.

And the platform support vessel MMA Responder will support a bubble curtain noise mitigation scope for turbine installation works on the Changfang and Xidao wind farm project.

The MMA Pride and MMA Crystal are scheduled to commence operations in early April 2021 and the MMA Responder in late June 2021.

Last year, MMA Offshore entered the Taiwanese offshore wind market with the contract to support foundation installation at an undisclosed project.

”We are extremely pleased to secure these contracts which further establish MMA’s presence in servicing our offshore wind market clients in Taiwan. This is a key strategic focus area for the business as we diversify our service offering into supporting the growing offshore renewables market,” MMA’s Managing Director David Ross said.
