Ørsted Continues Offshore Wind Support in Taiwan

Ørsted has signed four Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) in Taiwan in order to continue exchanging knowledge on offshore wind and developing the industry.

Ørsted signed an MoU with National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology (NKUST) forging business-academia links to ensure knowledge exchange on offshore wind and develop local talents in marine fields.

NKUST, which will be established on 1 February by merging the National Kaohsiung Marine University, National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences, and National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology, will cover the fields of marine, industrial application and technology.

Once the NKUST is established, the first task will be for both sides to work jointly to establish a Master’s degree program in offshore wind, combining research and practice, with a goal to start enrollment in 2019.

In addition, Ørsted signed the agreements with Dragon Prince (a spin-off from Kaohsiung Marine University’s business incubator), Pan Formosa, and EGS Taiwan, respectively, to continue sharing offshore wind expertise and supporting these local businesses in developing technical capabilities and skills for geology surveys and geophysics to meet the standards required in offshore wind project development.

Kaohsiung is historically known for its marine and heavy industry and has great potential to become one of the centres for offshore wind, just like Changhua where our offshore wind farms will be located. We’re pleased to further collaborate with NKUST to support offshore wind education, research, and talent development,” Matthias Bausenwein, Ørsted’s General Manager for Asia Pacific and Taiwan Chairman, said.
