Transporting technicians quickly, safely, and comfortably to and from sites, even in tough weather conditions, is critical to offshore construction and maintenance project performance in offshore wind. Fast, reliable Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) provide valuable logistical support to deliver fresh – rather than fatigued – personnel on-site and maximize their work window.
CWind is an established CTV operator in Europe, with a long and established track record in this important segment of the market, and since 2017 we’ve successfully transferred this knowledge and experience to Taiwan to establish CWind Taiwan as the leading and largest Taiwanese CTV operator, with six CTVs under the Taiwanese registry.
In establishing CWind Taiwan as the CTV operator of choice in Taiwan, we’ve invested heavily in the staffing, training, and development of the vessel crews. To enhance our local crew competency, we have initiated a program since 2019 of sending our Taiwanese CTV crew’s to Europe for immersion training and working on CWind UK CTVs on the offshore wind farms in Europe. To continue crew development and training, we’ve had CWind’s European skippers come to Taiwan to support further training in vessel operations, transfer procedures and Integrated Management System (IMS), which we adopted from CWind UK, and ensure the same standards of operation our clients expect in Eruope, are delivered immaculately here in Taiwan.
CWind Taiwan’s six CTVs comprise of the leading vessel designs on the CTV market, with transfer capacity up to 1.75m Hs and the ability to work in the harshest weather conditions. We also have a fleet of smaller, more fuel-efficient CTVs, ideally suited to working Taiwan’s nearshore wind farms and being based closed to site to minimse transfer time.
