TÜV SÜD is carrying out a training program regarding offshore wind energy in Taiwan

On behalf of MIRDC (Metal Industries Research & Development Center), TÜV SÜD is carrying out an extensive training program regarding offshore wind energy for representatives of authorities and market participants.

In the field of energy politics Taiwan pursues a long-term strategy in order to reduce CO2 emissions. One part of this strategy is the development and expansion of power generation in offshore wind farms.It is planned to have 600 offshore wind turbines with an output of 3.000 MW to go into operation by 2030 in Taiwan.


The necessary measurements at the turbines and in the wind farms shall be carried out by experts of the MIRDC in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The measurements include parameters like performance charac¬teristics, load limits and acoustic emissions and are usually carried out in accordance with international norms and standards.

In order to speed up the expansion of offshore wind energy in Taiwan, TÜV SÜD is carrying out an extensive training program on behalf of the MIRDC, which is aimed to be a source of information for representatives of authorities, manufacturers, wind farm operators and other market participants on content and application of international norms and standards. The program is aimed to be running for two years and among other contents comprises the development and implementation of testing and certification processes as well as training programs for participants in Taiwan and Germany.

"We are very happy to have won the competition and to have received this challenging and exciting order," says Ulrich Knopf, the responsible manager of this project at TÜV SÜD. "It is a huge acknowledgement for our expertise and our experience in the field of wind energy and especially in the field of offshore wind energy."

"The development and expansion of offshore energy in Taiwan is an important topic," says Lawrence Lee of TÜV SÜD in Taiwan. "Dealing this deeply with existing international norms and standards has the ability to enormously speed up the expansion of renewable energy capacities in our country."
