Global Wind Service opens branch in Taiwan to support increasing offshore wind demand

Wind turbine installation and service company Global Wind Service (GWS) has established a local branch in Taiwan. GWS has been represented by a Fred. Olsen Ocean branch office in Taipei since end 2019 but has now chosen to set up independently in the country.

Having a separate branch Taiwan is part of GWS’ growth strategy and an important step for the company to support the growing offshore wind market in the country.  GWS is be represented by Hans Hansen and the plan is to develop and grow locally to secure further projects and build a local workforce.


“We are very excited about this establishment. The Taiwanese market for offshore wind holds an enormous potential for development and growth, making it the natural next step for GWS. Growth has always been and still is an important part of our DNA and we are constantly developing our company to meet the needs of our clients. It has long been our ambition to establish ourselves on the Taiwanese market, and we feel that now is the time. The market is picking up and so is the number of projects secured by GWS” said Lars Petersen, Chief Commercial Officer at Global Wind Service.


During 2019 and 2020 GWS has already worked on different projects in the country delivering various scopes including wind turbine installation and completion works, secondment of tagline operators, and installation supervisors.


GWS branch office is located in the city centre of Taipei, only a 20-minute drive from the Songshan airport. The address is the same as for the existing Fred. Olsen Ocean branch office.
