Taiwanese Delegation Visits Danish Offshore Wind Sites

A Taiwanese offshore delegation interested in enhancing cooperation between the Danish offshore hub and Taiwan recently visited Denmark. Invited and hosted by Offshoreenergy.dk, the delegation visited the MHI Vestas and Siemens pre-assembly sites at the Port of Esbjerg, as well as the wind turbines at Maade (near Esbjerg) and LORC on Funen, Denmark.

Offshoreenergy.dk initiated cooperation between Taiwan and Denmark last year when the offshore cluster set up a consortium in Taichung harbour with the Port of Taichung, ITRI, China Steel and four member companies.

“The task is to prepare the present industrial port of Taichung to handle future offshore projects. Our members each contribute specialist expertise,” said Director of Renewables in Offshoreenergy.dk, Hans A. Pedersen. “DHI specialises in water environments, NIRAS in building ports and the Port of Grenaa knows all about managing a port. DIS Engineering is a consultant company specialising in technical product development and production equipment.”

Taiwan has great ambitions for offshore wind, Offshoreenergy.dk said, and the Taiwanese are looking to Denmark as the best working example.

“Offshore energy is important for Taiwan. Denmark is a world-leading country with great experience of design and installation. Denmark also has a robust supply chain. It is a very good country to learn from,” said Deputy Minister Jong-Chin Shen, Ministry of Economic Affairs in Taiwan, when he visited Denmark.

He was with a delegation of 12 representatives from the Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs, Industrial Development Bureau, Bureau of Foreign Trade, Industrial Technology Research Institute, China Steel and the Taipei Representative Office in Denmark.
