CWind Taiwan completes inaugural contract at Yunlin offshore wind farm
CWind Taiwan, a joint venture between CWind and International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant (IOVTEC), has successfully completed its first project, a bathymetric survey at wpd Taiwan’s Yunlin offshore wind project.
The month-long project involved the CWind Taiwan team deploying an IOVTEC survey vessel equipped with multibeam echosounder (MBES) to map a 5.25 square kilometer section of the wind farm project area. 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.
