Taiwan’s First Offshore Installation Vessel Joins DEME’s Fleet
Belgium-based DEME has announced that the vessel Green Jade, the first floating, DP3 heavy lift and installation ship constructed in Taiwan, officially joined its fleet.
Green Jade joined DEME’s fleet after a naming ceremony was held at the Kaohsiung shipyard in Taiwan.
The vessel is similar to Orion, which joined the company’s fleet in the spring of 2022.
CDWE, the joint venture between CSBC and DEME Offshore will deploy the vessel for the installation of offshore wind farms in Taiwan.

According to its owners, Green Jade has several contracts in the pipeline already and will initially be deployed for the installation of jacket foundations at the 298 MW Zhong Neng project.
With its 4,000-tonne Huisman crane capacity and a cargo area of 8,200 square metres, the ship is able to transport multiple jackets and foundation components for next-generation, mega wind turbines in a single shipment, DEME said.
Equipped with dual-fuel engines, the vessel has a Green Passport and Clean Design notation. Additionally, Green Jade features various fuel-saving measures and environmental innovations, including a waste heat recovery system that converts exhaust gases and cooling water into electrical energy.
DEME said that the 216.5-metre vessel will support the targets set out in Taiwan’s Net-Zero Emissions report for at least 40 to 55 GW offshore wind energy by 2050.
