 臺灣港務公司為活絡「離岸風電」之國際交流合作,與英國在台辦事處於3/13高雄展覽館「2019亞太風力發電展」簽訂合作備忘錄,經濟部曾文生政務次長出席見證。臺中港務分公司鍾英鳳總經理表示,港口的經營須具備全方位的國際視野,不斷研判產業需求、世界經貿走向及綠能環保趨勢,來擘劃港埠的營運發展。本次與英國在台辦事處簽署合作備忘錄,是希望借重英國在離岸風電的前瞻發展經驗,拓展綠能港口之國際視野,精進相關港埠設施及服務,未來雙方將就離岸風電港口及海事相關資訊進行更多交流。


 英國在台辦事處代表唐凱琳(Catherine Nettleton)表示,希望雙方的合作能在建設與營運台灣離岸風場時期為台灣港口基礎建設帶來重要貢獻。此合作備忘錄的簽署剛好與英國政府宣佈離岸風電產業發展白皮書(UK Offshore Wind Sector Deal)的時間不謀而合;英國政府宣示要投注更多政府資源在科技創新、確保產業長期穩定發展來為英國建立一個低成本的潔淨能源系統、並擴大英國離岸風電技術人才。英國現今擁有全世界最大的離岸風力發電量,也因此我們累積了許多經驗與專業可以分享給臺灣港務公司與其他離岸風電夥伴們。

 英國從2003年第一座離岸風場開始到現在,經過了15年的努力,目前已安裝的機組發電量達7.6GW,至2020年可望達到10 GW。大量的基礎建設需求吸引了世界一流的開發商,且為配合在地工程施作,英國也自然而然培育了相關供應鏈,包括港口建設、海底電纜、維修工程及顧問規劃等,而因應全球再生能源發展趨勢,英國離岸風電廠商也開始將其商品及服務銷至海外,帶動了英國國內經濟成長。


 鍾英鳳總經理提及,港務公司為配合政府離岸風電的推展,在交通部的指導下,過去幾年中一直積極參與風電產業的規劃和佈局。在107年底,臺中港首座離岸風電2號碼頭已經完工,該碼頭係因應風機葉片預組裝作業而進行強化,即將在三月底迎接臺灣第一個示範風場的預組裝作業。此外,為支援短期間水下基礎結構的預組裝作業需求,臺中港也提供43號碼頭及相關土地作為因應;不管在港區的陸地上或是水域,都可看到風機大型零組件以及風電工作船舶的繁忙作業。未來,港務公司將持續善用各項港埠資源,朝全方位風電港口邁進,提供港口基礎設施、物流服務、風機運維基地及風能訓練等服務,期許作為風機產業的最堅實後盾。

(Kaohsiung, 13 March 2019)
 At the Asia Pacific Wind Energy Expo in Kaohsiung today, the British Office in Taipei and Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on joint co-operation in respect of the development of Taiwan’s offshore wind industry. The signing was witnessed by Wen-Sheng, Tseng, Vice Minister of Economic Affairs and representatives from leading companies in the UK offshore wind supply chain.

Ms. Catherine Nettleton, Representative of the British Office, said:

 

 

‘I am delighted to be signing this Memorandum of Understanding between the British Office and Taiwan International Ports Corp. at this exciting time. I hope that our collaboration will make a significant contribution to the development of Taiwan’s port infrastructure during the construction, operation and management phases of Taiwan’s offshore wind farms. This MoU signing coincides with the recent announcement by the UK government of a new offshore wind sector deal in the UK, which commits more government resources to technology innovation, will provide long-term certainty for industry to deliver a low-cost and clean energy system for the UK, and will broaden our offshore wind skills base. The UK has the biggest offshore wind capacity in the world, and through this we have built up a great deal of experience and expertise that we look forward to sharing with TIPC and other offshore wind partners in Taiwan.’

 

          

 

Mr. Ying-Feng Chung, President of Port of Taichung, TIPC said:

 

The operation of a port requires omnidirectional international perspectives, constant research & judgment on industry needs, and knowledge on global economic & trade outlook and green energy & environmental protection trends in order to plan for the operational development of the port. In order to fit in with the government’s plan for the development of off-shore wind farms, the Port of Taichung, TIPC, has formulated plans to provide diversified services, including port infrastructure (such as heavy-loaded wharf and land), logistics services, wind turbine O&M base, and wind farm training. I am very glad that the Port of Taichung will be welcoming the pre-assembly operation of Taiwan’s first pilot wind farm in March this year. In the future, with the progress of constant wind farm construction, we can see the port area be busy with operations on large turbine components and wind farm support vessels both onshore and offshore. Signature of MoU with the British Office Taipei aims to borrow the UK’s forward-looking development experience in offshore wind farms in order to broaden our global horizon as a green energy port and enhance the performance of related port facilities and services. Hopefully, in the future, we can have even more exchange of information on related offshore wind harbour and marine affairs.

 

 

 

Under this MoU, further exchange in the areas of policy, strategy, technology, operations & maintenance to promote offshore wind port & marine sector will be accelerated adding on the already close co-operation between the UK and Taiwan offshore wind sector, as the two parties agreed to increase information sharing and co-operation.
