First Geotechnical Laboratory for Offshore Soil Mechanics Testing In Taiwan

As global concerns increase about the pace of energy transition in accounting for long-term climate risks, the shift from fossil-based energy production to renewable sources, like wind, has been accelerated. Within Taiwan, the national offshore wind allocation plan has set a target of increasing local production to 20GW by 2035.

It anticipates that in the decade ahead, the implementation of offshore wind farms in the Taiwan Strait is expected to grow significantly, with multiple new wind turbines placed into commercial operation. The below case study explains the situation in Taiwan, obstacles they came up against, the apparatus they purchased and their preliminary results.
