ABP, TIPC collaborate on Floating Offshore Wind 

Associated British Ports (ABP) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) to collaborate on floating offshore wind (FLOW) related port infrastructure and to explore future commercial partnership prospects.

The MoU was signed by TIPC Vice President of Business, Shu-hui Cheng and ABP Head of Offshore Wind, Andy Reay and witnessed by TIPC Chairman, Hsien-yi Lee and British Office Taipei Representative John Dennis.

Henrik L. Pedersen, CEO of ABP, said: “This agreement with Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) represents an exciting new stage in our journey towards net zero, for which international collaboration is key.

“Floating offshore wind presents huge opportunities to the UK, from becoming a global leader in green energy generation to creating significant jobs, prosperity and energy security. We look forward to working with TIPC to exchange ideas and accelerate the advancement of this technology.”

TIPC Vice President of Business, Shu-hui Cheng, stated: “The third phase of offshore wind power development is about to unfold in Taiwan.

“With larger scale wind turbines, localisation policies, etc., there will be more demand for land and space in ports of Taiwan, and the demonstration plan of floating wind will also bring up more requirements and challenges.

“Through the signing of the MoU with ABP and information sharing between the two parties, I believe that TIPC will be fully prepared on port planning and construction in coordination with offshore wind power policies.”

In October, ABP announced a deal to investigate an area for the development of infrastructure to support offshore wind (OSW) manufacturing.

That same month, ABP purchased a further 11 Zephyr air quality monitors from EarthSense doubling its existing network.
