UK-Taiwan Renewable Energy Mission, June 2015

NIRAS warmly welcomed the Taiwan Renewable Energy Mission of the UK Government’s “UK Trade and Investment” department to our Cambridge office on Monday 22nd June.

The mission was led by Dr Chuang-Neng Lin, Director General of the Bureau of Energy, Ministry of Economic Affairs; and included over 20 senior officials from the Taiwanese Government, think tanks, trade associations, consultants, developers and contractors. The focus for their UK visit incorporated a significant offshore wind component, including marine engineering, port construction, operation and maintenance, zonal development (UK Round 3) lessons, consenting issues, fisheries and training.

Dr Tim Norman, the Managing Director of NIRAS Consulting Ltd, presented an overview of NIRAS’ extensive engagement in the offshore wind industry. With over 25 years of practical experience in all aspects of offshore wind project life cycles, NIRAS has supported the development of over 20 GW of offshore wind farm projects. NIRAS are well positioned to share with the Taiwanese our experience and understanding from a strong history of offshore wind within Europe. This engagement will build upon our offshore wind capacity building support for Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) since 2011 and our involvement in a number of key projects to date.

During the mission’s four day UK visit they held a Roundtable workshop at the Global Offshore Wind 2015 conference in London on 26th June. The roundtable included senior representation from numerous key entities involved in the UK Offshore Wind market. Dr Damon Stanwell-Smith represented NIRAS at the well-attended workshop; which focussed on the imminent release of details of Taiwan’s procurement needs for offshore wind; and announced in person by mission delegate Mr Chun-Chuan Chen, Vice Director of Taiwan Power Company.
