Written by  OE Staff Monday, 05 December 2016 11:06

Offshore Wind Consultants Ltd. (OWC) has been appointed by a Taiwanese renewables company to provide consultancy services related to wind turbine installation vessels and their suitability for different wind turbines and site locations offshore Taiwan. This contract is OWC’s first assignment in the Taiwanese offshore wind sector. T

Under the contract, OWC will provide technical due diligence services to assess vessel suitability for wind turbine installation in the Taiwan Strait. 

“The installation challenges and therefore the lessons are similar to those in Europe and we bring considerable experience from this market, which is why we were chosen for this assignment,” says Ian Bonnon, managing director, OWC. 

Taiwan is aiming for 600MW offshore wind capacity by 2020, and 3GW by 2030. It aims to create a new green era and become a nuclear-free homeland. Taiwan has committed to and started the development of a number of offshore wind projects, and has a considerable number of zones for leasing/development.
