Associated British Ports (ABP) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to cooperate with Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) on floating offshore wind.
ccording to ABP, the MOU opens the door for information and experience sharing between the two signatories on floating offshore wind (FLOW) related port facilities and for the exploration of future business collaboration opportunities.
Floating offshore wind presents huge opportunities to the UK, from becoming a global leader in green energy generation to creating significant jobs, prosperity and energy security.

The MOU was signed by TIPC Vice President of Business, Shu-hui Cheng and ABP Head of Offshore Wind, Andy Reay and witnessed by TIPC Chairman, Hsien-yi Lee and British Office Taipei Representative John Dennis.
The third phase of offshore wind power development is about to unfold in Taiwan. With larger scale wind turbines, localization policies, etc., there will be more demand for land and space in ports of Taiwan, and the demonstration plan of floating wind will also bring up more requirements and challenges.
