Siemens Gamesa Picks Contractor for First SOV Newbuild in Asia

Siemens Gamesa has awarded a 15-year charter contract to Cyan Renewables for its first service operation vessel (SOV) in Asia.

The contract will begin in 2026 and the SOV will be used to service 73 Siemens Gamesa SG 14-222 DD wind turbines at the Hai Long offshore wind farms, located about 50 kilometres off the coast of Changhua County in Taiwan.

With a total installed capacity of 1,044 MW, the offshore wind project is expected to power more than one million households.

Cyan Renewables, a portfolio company of Seraya Partners, will equip the SOV with technology such as Siemens’ BlueDrive PlusC propulsion system for optimal energy efficiency while maintaining its environmental footprint, the firm said.

“We are proud that Cyan Renewables has clinched the contract to build SGRE’s first SOV in Asia. With the accelerating growth of the offshore wind industry, there is a pressing need for more technically advanced support vessels with high fuel efficiency to facilitate the installation and servicing of large offshore wind turbines,” said James Chern, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer at Seraya Partners.


The vessel will also be designed to ensure the safe transportation of service technicians all year round to maintain the offshore wind turbines, each featuring a 222-metre diameter rotor and 108-metre blade length.

The construction of the SOV is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2024.

This is a follow-on collaboration between Siemens Gamesa and Cyan Renewables. Since July 2023, the company has been supporting Siemens Gamesa in maintaining three offshore wind farms in Belgium with its purpose-built SOV Groenewind which the company acquired from Belgium-based DEME Group last year.
