More specifically, the MOU is expected to innovate and overhaul Taiwan’s offshore wind power operational maintenance applications by leveraging the UK’s experience, hence delivering a more comprehensive ecosystem for the NT$30 billion domestic wind power operational maintenance market. ...  more

Researchers Improve Wind Farm Efficiency Through “Collaborative Turbines” with Wake Steering Technology

published: 2021-07-15 9:30 | editor | category: News
In order to minimize the wind turbine’s wake effect and thereby raise the power generating efficiency of wind farms, some scientists have turned their sights towards controlling the angle of upstream turbines, to hopefully transform wind turbines into a mature industry. These scientists invented a system that can intelligently adjust the turbines’ yaw angle and pitch angle such that downstream turbines are not adversely affected by wake effects. ...  more

New Offshore Wind Power Installation in Taiwan to Reach Mere 490MW Owing to Impact from Pandemic

published: 2021-07-14 9:30 | editor | category: News
Taiwan’s monsoons mean that offshore wind power installations can be carried out only six months every year. Unfortunately, the proliferation of the COVID-19 pandemic in 1H21 has delayed most of these installations. Taiwan’s MOEA (Ministry of Economic Affairs) subsequently declared that a total of 429 MW in wind power will likely be installed this year, with the shortfall in capacity to be compensated for by the end of 2022. ...  more
