Damen Shipyards Group has delivered two Fast Crew Suppliers 2710 to Hung Hua Construction Co Ltd in Taiwan. The vessels, named Falcon No 5 and Falcon No 6, join two other Damen FCS 2710 vessels and an FCS 2610 in the company’s fleet. Like the previous vessels, Falcon No. 5 and Falcon No. 6, will be operated by Dong Fang Offshore a wholly owned subsidiary of Hung Hua Construction. The vessels serve the local offshore wind industry currently being developed in Taiwan.
Damen has taken steps to ensure their arrival in Taiwan in time for the start of the offshore work season. This has included transporting the Falcon No. 5 and Falcon No. 6 on a heavy lift vessel faster than sailing the vessels on their own keel. Following their arrival, the vessels are undergoing final preparations ready to commence work in March.
Damen has already started work on the construction of two further FSC 2710 vessels at its Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam.https://www.damen.com/-/media/new-corporate-damen/images/news/2021/01/damen-delivers-two_fcs_2710_vessels_to_hung_hua_construction_co_ltd/two_fcs_2710_vessels_to_hung_hua_construction_coltd_hero.jpg?h=525&la=en&w=1340&rev=e159a47a1c6043bb843a79ad35040df5
