Changfang-Xidao (CFXD) Offshore Wind Farms choose SMC to deliver project Marine Coordination services

SMC are set to deliver a turnkey marine coordination package for construction of the two windfarms, including the provision of both experienced Marine Coordination specialists and local Taiwanese personnel. SMC have previously supported CIP within the offshore wind sector during the construction of the Veja Mate Offshore Project (VMOP) in Germany.

Ryan Colbeck, Senior Project Manager for Changfang & Xidao had the following to say on the appointment of SMC:

“The CFXD team and SMC have a long-established relationship and we are happy to have them onboard again for our next Project in Taiwan.

SMC have not only established themselves as industry leaders in Taiwan, but they have also committed to invest in recruitment and training of local personnel, who will no doubt become the Taiwanese Marine Coordinators of the future in years to come. We know that with SMC by our side, our offshore operations and transfers will be managed safely and with the utmost professionalism.”

Thomas Barkley, Marine Operations Manager at SMC, stated:

“We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to again work on a project led by CIP. This contract represents our 8th Marine Coordination project in Taiwan, and we will bring forward all the lessons and experience we have gained from working in-country, as well as our 50+ strong Marine Coordination project portfolio in Europe, to ensure we deliver to the highest standards of safety and quality. We are excited to get to work and, in keeping with our commitments to local content and to empowering an offshore focused Taiwanese workforce, we look forward to recruiting and developing local professionals in support of our operations”.

The delivery of Marine Coordination services will commence in 2021 and continue for the duration of construction, with SMC supporting operations in-country and with additional remote support from the United Kingdom.

As a company, we are proud of our track record in developing personnel and indeed in training local people. We now have a strong pipeline of work established in Taiwan for the coming years and it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to recruit locally, delivering knowledge and expertise that can hopefully benefit the region and its people for many years”.
