Integrated services for offshore wind farms from a single source

Deutsche Windtechnik is setting the pace in Taiwan

The Taiwanese government has set itself an expansion goal of 5.5 GW of offshore wind capacity, and it awarded licenses for the first large scale commercial offshore wind farms in April 2018. Taiwan is currently the fastest growing offshore wind market in the Asian-Pacific (APAC) region.

Deutsche Windtechnik, the leading independent service provider in Europe, established a subsidiary in Taiwan in 2018. The branch is headquartered in the city of Taipei. Deutsche Windtechnik won its first large-scale offshore wind project in November of the same year to provide balance of plant (BOP) service and operations management for the Yunlin offshore wind farm.

The close cooperation between Deutsche Windtechnik Co. Ltd. (德唯特股份有限公司) in Taiwan and its affiliates ensures extensive knowledge transfer from the group’s existing projects in Europe to the new Taiwanese market, and this enables the local business unit to offer the group’s complete range of services.

Deutsche Windtechnik is committed to developing and establishing a sustainable local supply chain, which includes the qualification of subcontractors and sub-suppliers as well as cooperating with a local university for the qualification and employment of local labour.

Offshore wind energy will play an increasing role in the overall APAC region in the future. The new subsidiary gives Deutsche Windtechnik a strong foundation for further growth in the Asian-Pacific region.
