ABS and ABS Group Share Offshore Wind Knowledge in Taiwan

ABS and its subsidiary ABS Group recently held an Offshore Wind Farm Seminar for more than 70 offshore wind professionals at shipbuilder CSBC’s offices in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

The seminar, built on ABS Group and ABS’s global offshore wind experience, examined potential issues in developing offshore wind projects in Taiwan including design, construction, installation, certification, quality assurance and risk assessment of typhoons and earthquakes.

“We were extremely excited to be invited by CSBC to share our global knowledge and experience on dealing with offshore wind challenges and how that applies to the Taiwanese offshore wind business,” said Torsten Muuss, Director of Global Renewable Energy for ABS Group. "Based on our safety and risk assessments for 11+ GW of offshore wind projects globally and as the Certified Verification Agent for the first U.S. offshore wind farm, we believe we bring a significant contribution to this emerging market.

Pier Carazzai, ABS Global Business Development Director, said: “ABS has a strong relationship with the Taiwanese Shipping community and we are eager to extend that to the offshore wind sector, assisting operators and producers meet the required certification scope set forth by IEC 61400-22 and the ABS Guide for Building and Classing Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Installations as well as Guide for Building and Classing Bottom-founded Offshore Wind Turbine Installations."
