StormGeo will be providing dedicated Metocean forecasting and typhoon warning services for the two-year installation phase and the first three years of operations. The Changfang & Xidao Projects’ Management, having experience with StormGeo from previous projects in Europe, said about their choice of StormGeo.
“StormGeo was selected for our Changfang & Xidao Projects based on their excellent performance on previous offshore wind projects and their market-leading presence in Taiwan,” said Ryan Colbeck, Senior Project Manager for Changfang & Xidao. “Together we will be able to not only provide essential accurate Metocean forecasting to our project team and suppliers but also build further on an already strong local model, ensuring future projects benefit further still from the actual conditions recorded on our project.”
