CWind Taiwan, a joint venture between CWind and International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant (IOVTEC), has completed its first project, a bathymetric survey at wpd’s Yunlin offshore wind project in Taiwan.
The month-long project involved the CWind Taiwan team deploying an IOVTEC survey vessel equipped with multibeam echosounder (MBES) to map a 5.25km2 section of the wind farm project area. Additionally, 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.
