Taiwan Ship Design, the shipbuilding is strengthened by High


High Tien Offshore, a Taiwanese company specializing in offshore wind marine engineering services, announced its collaboration with Ship and Ocean Industries R&D Center (SOIC) and Jong Shyn Shipbuilding (JSS) to build offshore vessels.

“In order to support the government’s localization development policy and developers’ tenders for zonal development offshore wind farms in the third round, High Tien Offshore plans to build Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV ) and Service Operation Vessels (SOV), with a mission to create Taiwan enhances and establishes an autonomous capability of marine vessels. The CTVs are expected to be deployed for wind farm services in early 2025, while the SOV can be delivered in early 2027,” said Chairman TSENG Kuo-Cheng of High Tien Offshore.

For the new CTV and SOV construction plan, High Tien Offshore engaged SOIC. For detailed engineering and construction, Jong Shyn Shipbuilding will cooperate with SOIC and the local shipbuilding supply chain to build and deliver these two types of vessels within the required time, quality and performance.

“In accordance with government policy, SOIC is investing all its efforts in the areas of new local construction vessels, coast guard vessels, research vessels, offshore wind farm vessels and smart vessel system,” said said SOIC Chairman CHIU Fong-Chen. “Certainly, Taiwan has had a late start in the field of offshore wind vessels, but we are confident that the local shipbuilding industry, including SOIC, will display our capabilities gradually but surely to become the trusted partners of developers and wind farm contractors, realizing the location of marine vessel development for offshore wind farms.

Currently, most marine vessels working at Taiwan’s wind farms are imported from overseas, with only a handful being built by local shipyards. High Tien Offshore responds to the localization development policy of the government which encourages the localization of marine shipbuilding, and cooperates with local enterprises and leading research institutes for the improvement, design and construction of ships sailors from highly localized and pioneering offshore wind farms, which will concretely exhibit Taiwan. self-sustaining capability and drive the development of local industry from ship design and construction to high value-added marine engineering and shipbuilding, facilitating the transition and upgrading of local industry and the chain supply.
