Australian companies Worley and MMA Offshore have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly provide integrated services to the offshore wind market in Taiwan and the broader Asia Pacific region.
Under the arrangement, Worley will provide turnkey operations and maintenance services and MMA will provide subsea and vessel services. The services will be particularly focused on life of field maintenance support.
Worley has significant experience in the offshore wind market, providing a vast range of services including development and consent consultancy, engineering, project management, procurement, installation, commissioning and maintenance services.
”We are thrilled by the opportunities presented by this partnership with MMA. This combination of capabilities is a strategic milestone, and forms part of our global offshore wind strategy to export our operations and maintenance capabilities into new emerging markets within Asia,” said Eoghan Quinn, Vice President for Offshore Wind, Power & New Energy, Worley.
MMA has established an early presence in the Taiwan wind market providing vessels and subsea services to the offshore wind farm construction projects in the region.
”We are excited to join forces with Worley to develop our service offering and grow our market share in the offshore wind market. I believe the combination of our marine and subsea expertise with Worley’s engineering and topside expertise will enable us to deliver a unique solution to the industry,” said David Ross, Managing Director, MMA Offshore.
