ABS is to provide classification services to the first floating heavy lift and installation vessel to be built in Taiwan.

Named Green Jade, the vessel has been commissioned by CDWE, a joint venture between Taiwanese company CSBC and Belgian offshore contractor DEME,  and will be built at CSBC in Taiwan for delivery in 2022 for deployment in the region’s offshore wind market.

“This is a key development for the region’s offshore wind capability and for the Taiwanese shipbuilding industry and we are delighted to be able to support it,” said Matt Tremblay, ABS SVP Global Offshore Markets. “Offshore wind has huge potential for growth globally and ABS has the experience to help the industry achieve its ambitions with an unwavering focus on safety.”

At 216.5m in length and with a crew of up to 160 people, Green Jade will be equipped to handle the heaviest monopiles, jackets and turbines and features a 4,000t capacity crane. As well as DP3 capability and dual fuel engines, Green Jade features a waste heat recovery system that converts heat from the exhaust gases and cooling water to electrical energy.
