Wartsila to Guarantee Operational Reliability of Wind Farm Installation Vessel


Wärtsilä has signed a long-term guaranteed asset performance agreement with CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering (CDWE), a joint venture between CSBC Corp. and DEME Offshore, covering CDWE’s new 216-meter marine installation vessel (MIV). 

The MIV, dubbed “Green Jade,” was designed and built in Taiwan and booked by Wärtsilä in Q1 of this year. The company says the lifecycle agreement it provides will increase the vessel’s uptime.

“From the very first discussions it was clear that availability, maintenance flexibility and reliability were essential for this project with CDWE during project execution,” says Henrik Wilhelms, Wärtsilä Marine’s director of agreement sales.

“This vessel holds a special flag administration and classification society exemption, permitting 7.5 years drydocking intervals. This is enabled with data, AI and close collaboration between us and the ship operator.”
