A joint venture between Mammoet and Giant Heavy Machinery Services has started working with Sing Da Marine Structure Corporation, a marine engineering subsidiary of China Steel Corporation to provide assembly, transportation and load-out services for Taiwan's first locally fabricated wind turbine jacket foundations, on site at its manufacturing facility.

Sing Da Marine Structure Corporation said, "We are excited to leverage Mammoet-Giant JV's engineering expertise to assist us with the design of lifting arrangements that will ensure efficient and safe operations. Mammoet-Giant JV's wide range of lifting and transport technology is enabling time and cost efficiencies for this project."

Mammoet-Giant JV will be performing the assembly, transportation and load-out of the jackets, which each weigh approximately 1,322 tons (1,200 t).

The PTC200-DS Ring Crane will assemble the jackets by first upending the lower jacket structure before installing both the upper structure and transition pieces at a single location.

Seventy-two axle lines of SPMT will then transport each jacket up to 3,937 ft. (1,200 m) from the jacket fabrication line to a storage area.

Four jackets are expected to be simultaneously assembled near the PTC200-DS Ring Crane while the crane also will complete multiple heavy lifts to load-out each jacket onto the barge, thus increasing time efficiency for this project.

The project is a joint effort between SDMS and renewable energy company Ørsted, with the aim to deliver jacket foundations and knowledge transference to develop Taiwan's offshore wind supply capacity.
