- 2018/03CTCI Targets Offshore Wind Power Business Opportunities to Make Green Energy Shines for TaiwanCTCI Group is the largest EPC turnkey contractor in Taiwan. It has extensive experience in domestic and international turnkey projects. Major projects include CPC Refinery, Liquefied Natural Gas Station, High Speed Rail, and MRT. As the leading company of Taiwan's engineering contracting industry, CTCI also responds to the government's green power policy to contribute to the sustainable development of Taiwan's environment while pursuing the growth of the company. Therefore, it will not be absent for the offshore wind power business opportunities. Recently CTCI has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Germany-based wpd AG energy group. CTCI hopes to make green energy shine for Taiwan using its most reliable engineering technology.
Wpd is a wind power and solar optoelectronics developer and operator. It is headquartered in Bremen, Germany, and has operating locations in 18 countries. Since its establishment over 20 years ago, it has installed nearly 2,200 wind turbines and has a total capacity of more than 4,400 MW. In 2016, wpd acquired Taiwan's infraVest Group, becoming the largest private renewable energy operator which operates more than 380 MW on-shore wind power and solar power. It has also planned offshore wind farm sites, including 708MW offshore of Yunlin and 363MW off the coast of Taoyuan.
Offshore wind power is a crucial key to Taiwan’s energy transformation. CTCI will actively compete for related business by utilizing its competitive strength in engineering design and management. In early 2018, CTCI Group's CTCI Machinery Corporation has received German TÜV Group PED (EU Pressure Equipment Directive), EN1090 (EU Steel Structure Certification), and ISO3834 (Welding Quality Management System Certification). CTCI Machinery Corp is the first Taiwan company to get certification from both the US and EU. This is a plus to offshore wind power and underwater infrastructure engineering services.
At present, there are only about 1,000 days left to reach the 520MW policy target by the end of 2020. All developers are fully committed and strive to complete the first potential wind farm in Taiwan by 2020. CTCI will also uphold the brand spirit of "The Most Reliable" and actively pursue business opportunities to provide green energy construction for Taiwan.

Founded during Taiwan's waste crisis, ECOVE quickly became a leader in EfW, waste management and resource recovery. Not satisfied with merely recovering energy from disposed resources, ECOVE kept improving its operations to recover as much energy as possible. ECOVE's successful experience in the treatment of garbage and wastes was appreciated by the European-Arab Environment Organization (EAEO) and has been invited to the Egyptian Environment Forum to deliver a speech.
EAEO, founded at Switzerland in 2006, is a non-governmental organization that keeps promoting the concept of sustainable development in Europe and Arab countries. It held “the First Arab Economic Forum for Eco-tourism and Protected Areas in Egypt”, which advocated the concept of eco-tourism and conservation of natural resources, has attracted numerous scholars, experts, enterprises and institutions from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan.
On behalf of company, Richard Huang, ECOVE sales manager, made a speech on "experience in treatment of municipal solid waste in Taiwan" and introduced the company's successful projects and techniques in the field of circular economy. Huang's speech drew a lively discussion, during which he interacted with participants who recognized that Taiwan's experience in treatment of municipal solid waste could be apply in other developing countries.
