IHC IQIP has enabled Swancor to install two monopiles, using the Hydrohammer S-2000, as the foundations for the first offshore wind turbines in Taiwan. IHC IQIP sincerely congratulates Swancor on its pioneering achievements in the Taiwanese offshore wind market.

Jiangsu Longyuan Zhenhua Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. was awarded the installation of the foundations for the Formosa project in Taiwan. IHC IQIP delivered the Hydrohammer S-2000 with 5.5m pile sleeve to the company.

The S-2000 was chosen as the perfect size of Hydrohammer for this project after close cooperation between all parties involved. IHC IQIP provided a comprehensive service to analyse the soil conditions and pile dimensions, and recommended the S-2000 as a result.

The Taiwanese offshore wind market is growing quickly and IHC IQIP looks forward to cooperating with more parties to ensure its continued success.
