CWind Taiwan Completes Inaugural Contract at Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm

CWind Taiwan, a joint venture between CWind and International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant (IOVTEC), providing offshore wind farm support services and training to Taiwanese offshore wind farm developers and owners, announced today that it has successfully completed its first project, a bathymetric survey at wpd’s Yunlin offshore wind project in Taiwan.

The month-long project involved the CWind Taiwan team deploying an IOVTEC survey vessel equipped with multibeam echosounder (MBES) to map a 5.25km2 section of the wind farm project area. Additionally, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was commissioned to undertake shallow water and land surveys.

The Yunlin offshore wind farm, to be located approximately eight kilometres from shore in the Taiwan Strait, is expected to generate a capacity of 640 MW. Construction of the site will begin in 2020.

Tom Manning, Deputy General Manager, of CWind Taiwan commented, “This significant contract completion demonstrates the strategic fit of CWind and IOVTEC, combining our experience with their survey capability and local industry know-how. CWind has successfully completed projects at almost fifty European offshore wind farms, supporting twelve gigawatts of power, which is why we are passionate about sharing our knowledge with emerging markets such as Taiwan.”

Mr Manning continued, “Our successful project execution further aligns the Company as a key member of the domestic Taiwanese supply chain, providing a range of integrated services to offshore wind farm developers. We are pleased to have worked closely with wpd, and look forward to working with them on future projects.”
