GL Garrad Hassan signs MOU with Taiwanese Industrial Technology Research Institute to develop Taiwan's offshore energy strategy.

The offshore wind resource around the Taiwanese coast is considered excellent, with more than 6,000MW potential capacity at water depths of less than 50m. Earlier this year the Taiwanese government announced an extensive plan to speed up the deployment of offshore wind farm and promote green energy economics. Beginning with a demonstration project in 2015, offshore installation is planned to ramp up over the coming years and reach 1000 turbines and 3000MW by 2030.

The Memorandum of Understanding will see GL Garrad Hassan and ITRI cooperate in the fields of wind energy technological developments pertaining to industrial technology, technology strategy, and technical information and training. Both parties will carry out joint projects, exchange technical information and expertise in the research and development of industrial technology, facilitate technical training of scientists and engineers, and explore opportunities for further cooperation in any other areas of mutual interest.

GL Garrad Hassan will share its expertise on offshore wind farm design, project management, offshore infrastructure, risk assessment and mitigation, certification, grid connections to marine energy technology, test site management and certification. They have advised on more wind energy projects than any other in the world and therefore its understanding of the interplay between technology, policy, economics and regulation is underpinned with a wealth of project experience.
