Cargostore, Rhenus Logistics and Maxlines Taiwan Offshore Wind Partnership Launched at Open Day in New Taichung Depot
On 1st July 2020 UK based offshore container supplier Cargostore Worldwide together with Rhenus Offshore Logistics and local Taichung agent Maxlines New Energy & Project Logistics Inc, officially launched their partnership by hosting an open day at the recently opened Maxlines depot in the port of Taichung, Taiwan.
The partnership aims to support the construction, operation, and maintenance of the planned wind farms off the west coast of Taiwan.
The open day saw delegates from the Taiwanese offshore wind industry in attendance and highlighted how the three companies can support the large growth expected for the industry over the coming years.
On show were Cargostore’s DNV 2.7-1 certified 10ft Half Height containers; units engineered for safety and used for the transportation of essential equipment and provisions to the offshore platforms.
With several Cargostore containers already on lease for upcoming projects, it has been a busy opening for the depot and to match the increased demand, Cargostore has larger quantities and more unit types scheduled for delivery to Taichung within the coming months.
Says Jacob Poot, Cargostore Worldwide, Vice President Offshore, “It’s great to see the high interest and demand through the busy attendance at the open day, as well as the bookings of several of our DNV 2.7-1 units from the depot. We look forward to providing more types of containers to offshore wind projects within the coming months.”
With 5.7GW of installed capacity planned by 2025 and further 10GW planned between 2026 – 2036 it is clear Taiwan is set to become global player in the offshore wind industry. Furthermore, several of the planned windfarms are off the west coast of Taiwan. Taichung, also being on the west coast is well placed to service these wind farms reducing delivery time for vital equipment and provisions to the offshore platforms.
