Our member, Dong Fang Offshore (DFO), together with event sponsor Sulmara Renewables, invite you to an exclusive tour of the Orient Adventurer, a state-of-the-art vessel working in the offshore wind industry in Taiwan. This tour is your chance to get an up-close look at one of the most advanced vessels in its class.
The Orient Adventurer is designed to support a wide range of subsea services, including ROV, trenching, and survey, and is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and a highly skilled crew. It also features a dynamic positioning system to keep the vessel in position and a motion-compensated transfer system to allow technicians to safely transfer between the vessel and the turbines. She is the largest walk-to-work vessel in Taiwan and is the only one in Taiwan equipped to install pipes and cables using a vertical lay tower, making her a sought after vessel for both fixed-bottom and floating offshore wind projects.
During the tour, you'll see firsthand the advanced technology and amenities that make the Orient Adventurer one of the most capable vessels in the industry. You'll also learn about the vessel's walk-to-work services, which provide a safe and convenient way for personnel to transfer to and from offshore platforms.
