Offshore Wind in Taiwan
Fuhai Met Mast Wind Data
In April 2019, TOWSC worked with DWTEK to execute the first underwater inspection campaign in Taiwan on the Fuhai Met Mast.
With Remotely Operated Vehicles(ROVs) and qualified ROV pilots, the following tasks were completed during the inspection:
- Scour Inspection: to inspect if seabed is over scoured.
- Structural Inspection: to see if there is any corrosion on the structure and cracks on the welds.
- Anode Inspection: to inspect if the anodes are well attached with the structure, and to examine the functionality of the anode through CP probe.
- Marine Growth Inspection: to decide if the marine growth requires cleaning by observing how much it is growing.
Upon completion of the inspection, BlueROVer, the UK partner of DWTEK, prepared the completed underwater inspection report forTOWSC and DWTEK to review with regards to this experience.
During the inspection, our team had HSE audit personnel accompanied, assessed risks of tasks in advance and ensured that the whole process complied with ISO 14001 and 45001 standards.
In Addition, a short documentary film was made for the inspection, as shown below.
