Ørsted Partners with Taiwan Research Institutions to Launch Dual-doppler Radar Project
Ørsted’s Dual-doppler Radar System is the most advanced technology of wind measurement available. It is also the only system of its kind that is applied to offshore wind farms in the world. Having successfully operated at Ørsted’s Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm in the United Kingdom, the Dual-doppler radar system will be deployed to Taiwan after all necessary approvals have been received by the authorities.
The dual-doppler project is a global flagship project for Ørsted with a team across thirteen time zones from Texas to Taipei. With this project, Ørsted lays the foundation of comprehensive knowledge sharing and strong collaboration between local and international experts. The Taiwanese public will also profit from the extensive research on typhoons, wind conditions and the collaboration between industry, research institutions and governmental bodies.
Matthias Bausenwein, Ørsted’s General Manager Asia Pacific said: “The Dual-doppler Radar Project is part of our extensive plan to promote the local collaboration with academic institutions and bodies. This project will also bring more local content to Taiwan, as we will need local construction companies and local consultants to deliver the project. By bringing the most advanced wind measurement tool to Taiwan, the industry and academia can build a strong platform to further develop technical capabilities in offshore wind.”
Ørsted’s dual-doppler project is an open collaboration which welcomes relevant bodies in the meteorological research community and universities to improve the understanding of typhoons and strengthen the understanding of wind energy in Taiwan. At the same time, Taiwan research institutions have a unique opportunity to conduct world leading research in wind energy through the analysis of the data collected from the dual-doppler project.
