Cargostore expands into Taiwan in conjunction with Rhenus and Maxlines
UK based offshore container
provider, Cargostore Worldwide have announced its expansion into Taiwan
in partnership with Rhenus Offshore Logistics and local agent Maxlines
New Energy & Project Logistics Inc., in support of the Taiwanese offshore
Cargostore has opened
a DNV Offshore CCU depot in the port of Taichung which is now fully operational.
The depot will stock a range of DNV 2.7-1 certified units including Open
Top and Half Height offshore CCU’s available now with more units being
deployed within the coming weeks.
The port of Taichung, situated on the west coast of Taiwan, is strategically
positioned to service the construction, operation, and maintenance of the
planned wind farms, with the majority located off the west coast. Cargostore
stated that situating the depot at this location will reduce the delivery
time and environmental impact when transporting equipment from the port
to the offshore platforms.
Says Jacob Poot, Vice President Offshore, Cargostore Worldwide, “This
is an exciting time for Cargostore Worldwide. Having successfully supported
the Offshore Wind Industry in Northern Europe, we see similar opportunities
in Taiwan due to the projected growth in Offshore Wind capacity, and we
are keen to support projects with our DNV 2.7-1 containers.”
