Danish energy company Ørsted has signed four Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreements in Taiwan, which entail exchanging knowledge of offshore wind power and how to expand their industry. Ørsted has signed a MoU with National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology (NKUST).

"Kaohsiung is historically known for its marine industry and has great potential of becoming one of the wind energy centers, like Changhua, where our offshore wind farms are going to be located. We are pleased to cooperate with NKUST to support offshore window training, research and talent development, "says Matthias Bausenwein, Ørsted's general manager of Asia Pacific and Taiwan.

NKUST, which will be created on the 1st of February by merging National Kaohsiung Marine University, National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences og National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology, will cover the areas of marine, industrial applicability and technology.

Once NKUST is established, the first assignment for both institutions is working together to create a master's degree in offshore wind power, which involves combining research and practice in order to start enrolling students for the new program in 2019.

Ørsted also signed deals with Dragon Prince (part of Kaohsiung Marine University's business incubator), Pan Formosa and EGS Taiwan to continue sharing their offshore wind power expertise and to support these local businesses developing technical skills in geology research and geophysics to meet the standards required for the development of wind energy projects.
