Certex UK has opened an office in Taiwan to serve the renewable energy market.
The Taiwanese operation, which will open with three dedicated members of staff, will report to Certex UK’s engineering services team, based in Great Yarmouth. As part of Certex Renewables it will also provide loose lifting equipment and bespoke lifting products, including the manufacture of wind turbine blade lifting attachments and other customised equipment.
Scott Wilcox, managing director at Certex UK, said: “Taiwan is in the early phases of offshore renewable energy, but already has a number of new wind farms planned in the coming years. We will initially be focussed on the provision of labour for inspection services for the onshore and offshore stages of the construction of new farms. It is early in the local market’s renewables journey, but we want to be close to the point of use from the outset —delivering equipment and services for which our brand has become renowned in other parts of the world.”
