CWind forms Taiwanese joint venture
Offshore services specialist CWind and Taiwan-based crew transfer vessel provider International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant (IOVTEC) have formed a joint venture.
CWind Taiwan will provide offshore wind farm training and support services to Taiwanese offshore wind farm developers and site owners.
The joint venture plans to expand training modules CWind established at two national training centres in the UK to, “support the growth of a core base of Taiwanese trained technicians, enabling local content in Taiwan”.
CWind’s training centres provide courses such as tower rescue, sea survival and response team training.
CWind installs and maintains submarine cables and is due to install a fibre optic cable at the 400MW Rampion site off England’s south coast.
The New Taipei City-based IOVTEC scans and maps seabeds and surveys submarine cables.
The Taiwanese government has stated its goal to increase the percentage of renewable energy contribution from six per cent to 20 per cent by 2025.
