Our Vision and Mission
International Ocean Group (IOG) is a market leader in Taiwan’s offshore wind industry, offering integrated services across multiple sectors. IOG consists of five business units, including IOVTEC, CWind Taiwan, Fugro IOVTEC, TIWTC and IOG Shipyard. Dated back to 2013, International Ocean Vessel Technical Consultant (IOVTEC) was the one of the local survey company that steps into the offshore wind market in Taiwan to provide integrated offshore wind services for the country’s landmark projects.
As an emerging industry these years, offshore wind development requires not only advanced and cutting-edge technologies, but also covers a wide range of specialized fields. However, through the whole offshore wind industry chain, foreign companies and technicians are still the main force in this industry. That is, now we face a dilemma of shortage of Taiwanese offshore wind talents. Therefore, how to cultivate local talents and transfer the skills and knowledge in Taiwan are the top priorities at this moment.
As the first marine engineering company in Taiwan, which took the first step towards offshore wind market, we always work hard on cultivating local offshore wind talents. In 2018, we established a joint venture, CWind Taiwan, with windfarm operation and maintenance expert in Europe, CWind. In the same year, IOG Shipyard was also established in Jiangjiung Harbor, in Tainan. In 2020, we also established a joint venture, Fugro IOVTEC, with Dutch Geotechnical specialist, Fugro. Furthermore, we also established Taiwan International Windpower Training Corporation Ltd. (TIWTC) with many public entities to introduce common international standards for safety training, which are set by Global Wind Organization (GWO), including BTT and BST etc. One of our mission is to strengthen professional techniques and competence in Taiwan and make resources are in place for the local offshore wind supply chain.
Through continuous learning and innovation, on one hand, we go full speed on localization in Taiwan and are committed to transferring knowhow in Taiwan. On the other hand, we also make efforts on cooperating with world-class professional enterprises to build offshore wind integrated service group. We are able to provide diversified and professional services not only at early stage of wind farm exploration, but also at mid-term construction and later maintenance and operation. Our vision is to make Taiwan be the offshore wind base in Asia Pacific region and always step at the forefront of offshore wind industry in Taiwan. And our passion makes us keep creating more outstanding offshore wind track records everywhere.
