CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE) recently held a steel-cutting ceremony to mark the official start of construction of the first offshore installation vessel to be built in Taiwan.

Green Jade will have a 4,000-tonne crane capacity and DP3 capability, which will enable CDWE and its customers to transport a multitude of multi-megawatt wind turbines, jackets, and components in a single shipment. It will also have accommodations for up to 160 people and dual fuel engines.

Construction will take place at CSBC Corporation’s facilities.
