CWind Taiwan has announced that it has been awarded a balance of plant (BOP) contract for Formosa 1 Offshore Wind Farm by Formosa 1 Wind Power(FOWI) in Taiwan.
The contract will utilise the company’s Taiwan-flagged CTV, Ocean Surveyor 3, and their in-house technicians. CWind Taiwan will provide topside inspection and maintenance services to the 22 turbines across phase 1 and 2 of the wind farm, including internal and external inspections and painting. Located close to the shore of Miaoli, CWind Taiwan will be using the Nanliao fishing harbour as its maintenance hub for the duration of the campaign. The Ocean Surveyor 3 and crew have been actively supporting the FOWI project out of this port since 2016.
CWind Taiwan is deploying the first batch of Taiwanese technicians to graduate from its Global Wind Organisation (GWO) training school, alongside senior technicians from its European parent company, CWind, to deliver the inspection services.
