Offshore Wind Farm Operations and Maintenance Service Provider - TOWSC

Taiwan Offshore Wind Farm Services Corp. (TOWSC), the subsidiary of Taiwan Generations Corp. (TGC), was established in 2014 with a vision to promote offshore wind business in Taiwan and the Asian Pacific area and provide independent Operations and Maintenance (O&M) services for offshore wind projects. TOWSC now has provided O&M service for Fuhai Met Mast including strategy design, contract management, electrical system and equipment inspection and maintenance, logistics management, and subcontractor interface.

Meanwhile, in alignment with the Taiwanese Government’s overarching strategy to localize the Offshore Wind supply chain, TOWSC’s business objectives seek to localize O&M technologies, skills, professionals and assets through participating a government-funded scheme, the Industrial Cooperation Program (ICP). Under the ICP mechanism, TOWSC is able to receive technology transfer from Energy Research Center of the Netherlands (ECN).
