Fugro Boosts Offshore Wind Projects in Taiwan

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/13/2017, Location: Asia

Complementing its 30 years of experience offshore Taiwan, Fugro has completed geotechnical and geophysical surveys for feasibility studies, installation, commissioning and cost-effective operation of offshore wind farms in UK, European and North American waters. In 2016 it undertook the first geotechnical and geophysical survey and metocean study project in Taiwanese waters for a major offshore wind developer for engineering design and environmental impact assessment purposes.

Amongst Fugro’s successful projects in the region’s oil and gas sector is a large-scale clearance survey for an exploration 3D seismic survey programme. The survey was conducted with International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant Co Ltd (IOVTEC), with whom the company has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

Optimising their service offerings in marine site characterisation under this MoU, Fugro and IOVTEC will also install a lidar buoy to collect wind resource data off the Taiwanese coast in January 2018. In addition to its surveying activity, IOVTEC will provide logistic and operational support to Fugro’s offshore metocean projects.

The agreement will see the two companies cooperate on marine survey projects in the waters surrounding Taiwan, with IOVTEC expanding survey services in the country and Fugro providing fit-for-purpose technology, equipment and expertise.

“IOVTEC brings to the MoU its specialist skills in domestic hydrographic and bathymetric surveys for coastal mapping, government port and harbour agencies, dredging and marine contractors and offshore wind farm developers in Taiwan,” explains Jerry Paisley, Fugro’s Director for Marine Site Characterisation in the Asia Pacific region. “Fugro’s offshore wind experience around the world and IOVTEC’s local skills make for an ideal partnership in Taiwan’s rapidly developing offshore wind sector.”
