NIRAS wins offshore wind project in Taiwan

Published: 14-10-2014

Taiwan Generations Corp has appointed NIRAS to act as Owner’s Engineer in developing an offshore wind project in an area with earthquakes and typhoons

The leading Taiwanese offshore wind farm developer, Taiwan Generations Corp. (TGC), has appointed NIRAS to act as Owner’s Engineer during the development of the Fuhai Deployment Zone on the west coast of Taiwan.

The Fuhai Deployment Zone is sited approximately 8km off the western coast of Taiwan, in water depths of around 20m.
The local environmental considerations, such as earthquake and typhoon, present a challenge for development in the Taiwan Strait.

“We are ready to provide expert technical advice and support to assist TGC in navigating a path to successful development,” says Claus Gormsen, Project & Market Director, Offshore Renewable, in NIRAS.

Award winning

The Zone will be developed in three stages, starting with the demonstration phase Changhua Offshore Pilot Project (two turbines) and an offshore met mast in 2015. This will be followed by the 28 turbine Fuhai Offshore Wind Farm (Phase 2), and then Fuhai Phase 3.
TGC have collected ten years of wind measurement data and accumulated various feasibility studies. With the solid front-end works, Fuhai Wind Farm Corp. - the project company of COPP and Fuhai Offshore Windfarm - was awarded in 2013 as the first-place winner of the The Incentive Program of Offshore Wind Power Demonstration System by the Bureau of Energy in Taiwan.

NIRAS will provide detailed consultancy support services to TGC in Taiwan, including FEED study, technical design review and quality assurance, and general project management.

“We are delighted to add this project to our expanding list of references in Asia. Our partnership with TGC establishes NIRAS as a leading international renewable energy consultancy in Taiwan and further consolidates our presence in the region,” says Claus Gormsen.

NIRAS will also provide assurance and monitoring support during fabrication, installation and commissioning activities in the Fuhai Deployment Zone.
