Keelung Project, Taiwan

Full scale 1MW greenWAVE 

Projects Overview

 

 

Oceanlinx plans to build and commission a 1MW greenWAVE demonstration unit in an Ocean Energy Testing and Demonstration Zone which was established by National Taiwan Ocean University (NTOU) in sea area of Keelung ,Taiwan. The Zone was approved by Central Fishery Agency, Keelung City Government and Local Fishery Association for demonstrating ocean energy technology, and there were already one ocean energy technology tested two times in the Zone for the past two years.

 

At the end of 2014, Oceanlinx and NTOU signed a MoU which allows Oceanlinx to build its demonstration unit in the Zone. NTOU will not only assist Oceanlinx to undertake detailed site investigation but also undertake local consultations with local fisheries and local government together with Oceanlinx based on its long term relationship with the stakeholders.

 

The demonstration unit will be in two phases. The first stage is going to be completed by April 2017 and the following phase will be finalized at the end of 2017.

 

An industrial harbour, Keelung Harbour is only 5 km away from the project site, and the harbour is planned to be used as on-shore assembly site. This allows Oceanlinx to reduce the costs and risks of sea transportation.
