Fuhai offshore wind complete the construction of the first met mast in Taiwan. The engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracts are awarded to domestic contractors, which has encouraged Taiwan and international players to start collaborations in offshore wind and accumulating the know-how for following wind farm projects in Taiwan.。
From intertidal wind measurement in Changhua since 2004, TGC has been continuously collecting wind data for more than 10 years. With validation from third parties, the data has been proven to be reliable in the feasibility studies and design basis of future wind farms offshore Changhua.
Influence from extreme weather conditions - typhoon and wave - is incorporated into the design of met mast. Also the design of met mast is based on the conditions described in IEC Class I standard to withstand high wind speed and gust conditions as well as the condition of maximum wave height of 15 meters.
