SMC Sets Up Taiwan Branch

OrbisEnergy tenant Specialist Marine Consultants (SMC) Ltd has established a branch in Taiwan with an aim to support the offshore wind sector in the region.

The new branch is located in Taipei and will be managed by SMC’s Operations Director and Taiwan Regional Manager, Dean Coates.

“We are extremely pleased to reach what is yet another significant milestone in the growth of SMC, globally. Taiwan represents a key market for the company, and we look forward to building upon our presence here in the coming years,” said Coates.

“We bring great experience assimilated from our works on some of the world’s most significant offshore wind projects and we will look to focus our knowledge and lessons learnt whilst developing key skills for local people and communities.”

According to the UK company, besides signing several Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with local partners throughout 2017/18, SMC has secured a number of offshore wind contracts in the area with further announcements expected in the coming months.

Most recently, SMC completed a full inspection of Seajacks’ self-propelled jack-up vessel Zaratan before work in Taiwan, where it will be used for the construction of the 120MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind project.
