Damen Shipyards to supply a new Construction Service Operation Vessel

On 21 November 2023 Damen Shipyards signed a contract with Ta San Shang Marine Co Ltd (TSSM), a joint venture between Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd of Japan, and Ta Tong Marine Co Ltd of Taiwan, for the delivery of a Damen CSOV (Construction Service Operation Vessel) 9020.

This will be TSSM’s second SOV in their fleet. The first, TSS Pioneer, was delivered in 2022 and this new ship will be operational in late 2025.

The build will take place in Vietnam, where Damen has a large presence and proven track record for building large and complex vessels including SOVs, which are already under construction.

The new 90m vessel will support offshore wind farms off the coast of Taiwan by providing high quality accommodation for up to 120 personnel and ample storage for supplies. These will be for the various contractors supporting the wind farms both when under construction and when operational.

A motion compensated gangway ensures rapid and safe transfers to and from the turbines and substations, and the vessels are fitted with diesel-battery hybrid power generation systems and are also delivered fully prepared for future use of green methanol fuel.
