Phases 2 and 3 include the installation of 24 units of Goldwind turbines.

AqualisBraemar LOC’s scope of work includes the technical review and approval of all project documentation pertaining to the marine transportation and installation operations of wind farm components, on site attendance to oversee all critical marine operations, and vessel suitability surveys of all proposed offshore support vessels, including semi-submersible installation vessels.

Ltd.” comments Donny Ng, Business Development Director, AqualisBraemar LOC Singapore.

Since the beginning of 2020, AqualisBraemar LOC has been appointed marine warranty surveyor on seven offshore wind farms under construction in Vietnamese waters, with sister companies OWC and Longitude providing engineering and advisory services on a further three wind farms offshore Vietnam.

“Our growing track-record in Vietnamese offshore wind is a reflection of both the global reputation we have cultivated as a leading marine warranty service provider for the offshore wind sector, as well as of our recognised technical expertise in supporting the accelerated development of offshore wind across South East Asia.” adds Donny Ng.

AqualisBraemar LOC has over 800 technical staff and specialist consultants in 303 locations worldwide, including 60 offices across 38 countries.
