In a key new development for the creation of Taiwan’s localized wind farm industry chain, CECI Engineering Consultants, Inc., Taiwan is partnering with Denmark's Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and Reiju Construction to build a brand new Operation & Maintenance Center in Taiwan’s Changhua County which will serve Taiwan’s booming wind farm industry and make it much more sustainable and competitive. The agreement signature ceremony was held on July 31 and was attended by CECI’s Chairman Dr. Shih Yi-Fang, high-ranking representatives of CIP and Reiju Construction, as well as the Changhua County government.
Dr. Shih Yi-Fang stressed the importance of this project not just for CECI, but for the public in Taiwan, as it will contribute to the localization of the offshore wind power industry domestically, providing numerous local jobs and propelling the economic growth. CECI looks forward to doing its part on the project, deploying its talented and highly skilled engineers from CECI’s Central Taiwan branch office and ensure the best quality and timeliness of its services, said Dr. Shih.
The project is currently in its design stage, expected to be issued the construction permit in the fourth quarter of 2020, and to be completed and commissioned into operation within a year. The project site lies within the Changhua Coastal Industrial Park, adjacent to the Offshore Wind Farm Operation and Maintenance zone established by the Changhua County Government. The Operation & Maintenance Center is planned to be a two-story steel structure with a floor area of about 1,000 m2 and will include offices, maintenance, handling, storage, and other areas.
