Ampelmann Scores Five Offshore Taiwan

The Netherlands-based Ampelmann has secured contracts to provide its offshore access systems for five undisclosed offshore wind projects in Taiwan.

The contracts were signed in the first quarter of the year and include various Ampelmann systems to be used.

According to the Dutch company, one of the milestones is the first use of the Ampelmann E1000 system in the APAC region. The E1000 will provide offshore access for personnel and cargo in the construction phase of a Taiwanese wind farm.

The other four projects will all see the use of an A-type, operating in Taiwanese waters. 

“Securing these projects in the renewables market marks a turning point for the APAC region, as operations in the region used to be solely in Oil & Gas,” said Ramesh Namasivayam, Business Developer at Ampelmann. “This move requires the effort of our whole team and inspires us to get involved in many more projects in the region.” 

In September 2020, Ampelmann revealed it had signed a contract with Seaway 7 for an offshore wind project in Taiwan, representing the company’s first foray into the Taiwanese market.
