The public-private consortium includes government-backed enterprises and research bodies such as the Industrial Technology Research Institute, Taiwan Power Co. and China Steel Corp., as well as several local marine engineering companies, Taiwan Today reports.

“Wind power is an important link in the government’s green energy policy given its massive capacity potential,” CSBC Chairman Cheng Wen-lon was reported by Taiwan Today as saying during the launch ceremony.

“The consortium will help achieve this policy goal while boosting the economy through promoting investment and spurring the development of related sectors.”

The consortium will leverage each team member’s respective advantages and focus efforts on the planning, installation and maintenance of offshore wind turbines, in addition to providing training for engineering staff.
