The Taiwan Power Company is planning to install four to five wind turbines on the North East corner of the island. K2 Management has been awarded a contract to assist. The management firm will provide wind analysis experts to support the utility with wind data analysis, investigation of turbulence and extreme wind conditions, review of site terrain and roughness, and energy yield prediction analysis with improved modelling by use of computational fluid dynamics(CFD)-modelling. K2 Management will also provide training of selected staff members.
“We are committed to the development of wind energy and how we can secure the lowest cost of energy by using all the knowledge, research and tools available securing the Taiwanese population the best solution possible,” says Dr. Chen, Senior Researcher of Taiwan Power Research Institute, a part of Taiwan Power Company.
Any development is only as strong as its foundations. Good wind-project management starts at the earliest stages of project planning and early design decisions regarding contracting strategy and contractor selection will have a major influence on the eventual outcome of any project. Once a project is given approval to proceed, management, monitoring and control become the critical activities for success for your wind projects and wind farms.
K2 Management employs some of the industry’s most experienced project managers and our support to you can range from one-off work assignments through to providing an embedded Owner’s Engineer team.
Engineering and development of projects requires independent specialist input from knowledgeable professionals to ensure that the project is technically well designed. It is also critical that the design process takes into account the installation, operation, interfaces, and the capabilities of the installation equipment available in the market.
Maximizing the choice of sub-contractors for both component supply and installation will allow you to optimize construction costs.
“We are looking forward to service Taiwan Power Company with more or less the full package in terms of wind analysis,” says Cheng-Hu Hu, Representative of K2 Management Branch in Taiwan. “We are pleased to support a client who understands the importance for a thorough and detailed site mapping. Once you have erected your turbines, they are hard to relocate, so doing it right the first time is crucial.”
