The new joint venture, CWind Taiwan, will provide offshore wind farm training and best practice, as well as support services, to Taiwanese offshore wind farm developers and owners.

CWind Taiwan will adapt and extend the training model of CWind’s National Wind Farm Training Centres (NWFTC) in the UK, which provide a comprehensive range of Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and RenewableUK accredited courses including tower rescue, confined space, sea survival and response team training. The new joint venture will support the growth of a core base of Taiwanese trained technicians, enabling local content in Taiwan.

“Launching CWind Taiwan is another bold step in the strategic growth of the Global Marine Group,” said Ian Douglas, Chief Executive Officer of Global Marine Group.

“We believe the Taiwan offshore renewable market is on the cusp of exponential growth due primarily to the introduction of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Management Act, which seeks to increase the percentage of renewable energy contribution from six to twenty percent by 2025.”

According to CWind, the partnership is a combination of CWind’s offshore renewables experience and ability to develop local content and IOVTEC’s detailed knowledge of the Taiwanese offshore renewables market. It is expected to expand CWind’s reach in Taiwan, while broadening the deliverable capabilities of IOVTEC.
