Independent offshore wind specialist in the Taiwanese market, TOWSC (Taiwan Offshore Wind Farm Services Corp.) and wind power plant management specialist OutSmart join forces to provide an integrated power plant organization, with local presence in Taiwan, a proven management system and digital platform.

TOWSC is currently providing operations and maintenance (O&M) planning and development services to wind farm projects in Taiwan including asset management services for the very first Taiwan offshore met mast, Fuhai Met Mast.

OutSmart provides services to wind farm owners, fund managers, and wind project companies in Northwestern Europe to optimize the revenues of their wind assets. Part of independent service provider Deutsche Windtechnik AG, OutSmart currently operates 400+ onshore and offshore wind turbines as well as solar assets (1.8 GW in total) in Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK.

TOWSC has collaborated with OutSmart to establish a state-of-the-art fully integrated power plant management system for offshore wind assets. By combining OutSmart’s vast experience as an independent service provider in the European wind industry and the development expertise and local content of TOWSC, the parties have established a strategic asset management plan (SAMP) according to ISO 55001 for the Taiwanese Market, started the training exchange program in OutSmart’s Operations Control Centre in Emden Germany and facilitate advisory services for project developer in Taiwan jointly.

By joining forces TOWSC and OutSmart are enablers for project developers to cover the operations phase with minimum Levelised Cost Of Energy in their tender bid for new concessions in the Taiwanese market.

“We believe that our lessons learnt in the European offshore market will be most valuable within an upcoming offshore wind market like Taiwan. By combining our technical, financial, and commercial experience together with the expertise and local content of TOWSC, our cooperation provides a suitable power plant management solution for project developers, investors and other stakeholders” said Mr. Schiricke, CEO at OutSmart.

"OutSmart has an impressive breadth of experience in intelligent operation management for wind assets. By combining the expertise and experiences from both TOWSC and OutSmart, we will provide all aspects of wind power plant management in one efficient solution and truly give wind farm owners control of their own assets. It is a perfect example of international cooperation and a key milestone in achieving localization of O&M technologies and skills for Taiwan offshore wind” said Mr. Lin, CEO at TOWSC.
