Cyan, CMHI Sign Wind Turbine Installation Vessel Deal

Cyan Renewables, a Singapore-headquartered offshore wind vessel owner established last year by investment management company Seraya Partners, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with China Merchant Heavy Industry (CMHI) with the goal of manufacturing a wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV).

Cyan Renewables said that this brings them a step closer to their ambition of building new vessels with CMHI, one of the three largest shipyards in the world.

“As one of the largest shipyards in the world, CMHI has a strong track record in building offshore wind vessels, especially Wind Turbine Installation Vessels (WTIV). This MoU opens up a new chapter for future partnerships and we are excited about the opportunities it will unlock for our clients and customers”, said Keng Lin Lee, Group CEO of Cyan Renewables.

This is their second newbuild order in China after signing a letter of intent (LoI) with Cosco Shipping Heavy Industry to build its first Ulstein-design foundation installation vessel (FIV) in April this year.

Cyan Renewables was launched in September last year and, soon after, the firm established an office in Denmark which is the company’s regional headquarters for operations in Europe.

A couple of weeks ago, Cyan acquired the service operation vessel (SOV) Groenewind from Belgium-based DEME Group.
