Maersk Supply Service announced it has secured a long-term contract extension in Taiwan with Seaway7 for its cable lay vessel (CLV)
Maersk Connector.

The CLV  has been engaged to continue operations on behalf of Seaway7 until 31st December 2025. This follows a year of working on Seaway7’s projects in both Taiwan and the United Kingdom.

The vessel first commenced cable-laying provision for Seaway7 in October 2021, initially working in the North Sea at the
Seagreen offshore wind farm project. On completion, the vessel relocated to Taiwan to work on other Seaway7 projects, including the 640MW Yunlin offshore wind farm.

Delivered in 2016, the purpose built cable lay vessel measures 138 metres in length, 27 metres in breadth. Maersk Connector is specifically designed to transport and install large volumes of HVAC and HVDC power cable via its on-board 7,000 ton capacity carousel.

“We are very pleased to continue our work with Seaway7 and look forward to building our relationship further. We are also glad of the opportunity to continue growing Maersk Connector’s reputation as one of the most capable assets in the region, through a safe and effective track record,” said Duncan Harris, Head of Europe & Asia at Maersk Supply Service.

The vessel has also been active on a number of offshore wind farms in the past, including
WindFloat Atlantic, Moray East, Walney Extension, East Anglia ONE, and Nobelwind. It has also supported a number of subsea cable interconnector projects, including Skye - Harris replacement cable.
