Solis Marine recently supported the mobilisation of Jumbo’s offshore installation vessel ‘Jumbo Javelin’ in Singapore for part of Taiwan’s first large multi-megawatt offshore wind farm, Yunlin.
When travel restrictions prevented Jumbo Offshore from deploying its Netherlands based offshore team to Singapore to prepare for the mobilisation of its heavy lift crane vessel, Solis Marine was well-positioned to help Jumbo Offshore.
Managing the project on behalf of Solis Marine in Singapore was Captain Sjoerd Blomsma who said: “Solis Marine was pleased to be appointed by Jumbo Offshore to assist with the mobilisation of ‘Jumbo Javelin’ in Singapore for her upcoming project. Through close co-operation and teamwork, this has been successfully achieved despite a difficult period of lockdown.”
Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm
Heavy lift shipping and offshore installation operator Jumbo Offshore was awarded a contract to handle the transport and installation of wind turbine generator substructures for the Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm, a renewable energy project for the Taiwanese Government.
For the transport, Jumbo Offshore deploys several vessels of its heavy lift fleet. For the installation, it deploys its 144-metre DP2 Offshore Installation Vessel ‘Jumbo Javelin’, a dynamically-positioned heavy lift cr
Close co-operation and co-ordination with Jumbo Offshore’s Dutch team and its sub-contractors based in the Netherlands, Denmark, the UK and Singapore, overcame multiple hurdles, leading to the successful mobilisation of ‘Jumbo Javelin’ for her assignment.
In the final stages of the mobilisation, Solis Marine also assisted Jumbo Offshore with the on-hire and mobilisation of an Anchor Handling Towage Supply (AHTS) vessel to assist on the project.
Ad van Langeraad, Jumbo’s Technical Department Manager: “Solis was a great help in keeping a high degree of efficiency and finding solutions.”
