Marco Polo Marine Secures Maiden Contract for Specialized Offshore Wind Commissioning Service Operation Vessel

Marco Polo Marine Advances in Offshore Wind Sector: Secures Inaugural Contract for State-of-the-Art Commissioning Vessel with Vestas


Singapore-based Marco Polo Marine, a prominent player in the offshore vessel sector, has officially inked the first contract for its cutting-edge offshore wind commissioning service operation vessel (CSOV). The company finalized a framework agreement with Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas, a significant development following the memorandum of understanding established in December 2022 between Marco Polo Marine’s Taiwan-based subsidiary, PKR Offshore, and Vestas Taiwan.

Sean Lee, the CEO of Marco Polo Marine, emphasized the strategic importance of the formalized partnership with Vestas, describing it as a pivotal milestone in their endeavors to meet the escalating demand for support vessels in the offshore wind farm industry within the region.

The newly commissioned CSOV, designed to accommodate up to 110 persons, is slated for deployment across various offshore wind farms in the Asia Pacific region over a three-year period. The deployment plan is structured around a minimum annual utilization commitment.

Currently under construction at Marco Polo Shipyard in Batam, Indonesia, the vessel is expected to enter into service in the East China Sea during the second half of 2024. This vessel’s specialized capabilities align with the growing requirements of the offshore wind sector, contributing to the efficient commissioning and operation of wind farms in the region. Marco Polo Marine’s foray into this sector underscores the company’s commitment to meeting the evolving needs of the maritime industry while capitalizing on emerging opportunities in sustainable energy ventures.
