The Greater Changhua 1 & 2a Offshore Wind Farms are being built in Taiwanese waters. Palfinger supplies the offshore wind farm with tailor-made lifting solutions and carried out the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) remotely with a digital solution.
Palfinger is equipping Taiwan’s first two offshore substations (OSS) with two PF14000-4.0m LDB davit cranes as well as two PTM1800A telescopic cranes. Due to the Corona pandemic, the required Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) could not take place at Palfinger’s production site in Maribor, Slovenia. The company therefore relied on its digital service tool ‘Smart Eye’. This solution features a safety helmet equipped with a flexible and movable camera that enables a team of specialists in Europe to guide the customer in Singapore through all the FATs online and in real time.
