Sembcorp Marine (SembMarine) has landed a contract to build a next-generation wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) based on the company’s in-house design in collaboration with the customer, according to a filing to SGX Wednesday.

“Sembcorp Marine collaborated with its customer intensively over two years providing design development and verification work,” the company said. 

“Drawing from the company’s technological bench strength and world-class offshore engineering competencies, Sembcorp Marine will build a WTIV capable of operating at a high level of efficiency and to handle the next generation of wind turbines which are scaled up in size with longer, lighter rotor blades, taller towers, more reliable drivetrains, performance-optimising control systems and multi-megawatt power generation,” SembMarine said.

The project is due to be completed in early 2025, the filing said. 

The contract is via SembMarine’s wholly owned subsidiary Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters, the filing said. 

SembMarine has diversified from oil and natural gas-related projects into greener and renewable energy services since 2015, the filing said.

“With this contract win, Sembcorp Marine strengthens its position in the renewable energy segment, validating its strategy to transform itself into an innovative engineering solutions provider in the offshore, marine and energy industries with a strategic focus on sustainability,” the company said.
