Sembcorp Marine has confirmed a newbuilding contract for what is believed to be its first wind turbine installation vessel, but few details about the project have been released.

The Singapore-based group said the vessel would be built to its own in-house design in collaboration with the unnamed customer. Delivery is set for early 2025.

Sembcorp Marine said it had “collaborated with its customer intensively” over two years providing design development and verification work.
