We have extensive experience in delivering safe and timely engineered solutions for wind power and renewables projects and aim to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution for Taiwan’s offshore wind industry.”

Mammoet will now have a total of three offices on the island. The offices are located in: Hsinchu, Taichung and Kaohsiung.

Currently, Taiwan's government is rolling out its plans to achieve 25% of local electricity generation from renewable sources - in particular wind energy via offshore wind farms. The government is planning future wind projects, adding 1 GW per year until 2035. Taichung Port has been earmarked to be the offshore hub.
