Manor Renewable Energy expands Taiwan team

Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) has employed its first local offshore personnel in Taiwan for work on the Yunlin offshore wind farm. Ying Yuan Liu recently joined the offshore project team based in Budai, supporting MRE’s temporary power provision as an offshore refueller.

Ying Yuan Liu joins MRE from a background in the renewables sector, previously working as a GWO instructor at a training centre in Taichung; this will be her first offshore role.

Ying Yuan commented: “It’s great to get offshore and finally experience working offshore in its true environment. It’s a pleasure joining the MRE team and having the opportunity to grow my knowledge of the offshore wind sector in Taiwan.”

Brett Smith, General Manager at MRE, said: “We are delighted to welcome Ying Yuan to Manor Renewable Energy as a valuable addition to our team in Taiwan, where she will support our expanding activities in this important region; we have no doubt she will be a huge success in this industry.”

Yunlin offshore wind farm is located eight kilometres off the Taiwanese west coast in the Taiwan strait. With a total capacity of 640 MW, the project is one of largest offshore wind farms being developed in Taiwan. Now under construction, the project is expected to be fully commissioned in 2022.
