Acteon's Pulse Structural Monitoring, a key player in marine energy and infrastructure services, has been awarded a significant contract by Ørsted Taiwan Limited. The contract encompasses the design, engineering, procurement, installation, and commissioning of measurement and data acquisition systems for the Greater Changhua 2b and 4 offshore wind farms. These wind farms, located 35 and 60 kilometres off Taiwan's Changhua coast, will generate 920 MW of power and are slated for completion by the end of 2025.

The Pulse brand, part of Acteon’s Geo-services business line, will handle project-based systems integration and software development at the Pulse Technology Centre in Wokingham, UK. Installation will occur in South Korean and Taiwanese construction yards.

Paul Smith, Executive Vice President of Geo-services at Acteon, remarked, "The Greater Changhua 2b and 4 contract marks a significant advancement in Pulse’s capabilities within the global offshore wind industry. Our efforts will include campaigns to measure environmental conditions, metocean data, settlement, load and acceleration, corrosion, and anode efficiency. Utilizing the NX2 digital platform for synchronous data acquisition, Acteon aims to support clients in their journey towards achieving net-zero emissions."
