About Steelcomp

Steelcomp Co. Ltd. is a subsidiary of German InfraVest Group.It is tasked with the turn-key construction of the Group's wind power and PV power stations. Furthermore it is now entering the offshore wind power tower manufacturing and foundation business.

German InfraVest Group since coming to Taiwan in 2000 has developed, financed and built ca. 400 MW wind parks and PV power stations, and by that invested over EUR 500 mil in Taiwan.

In 2016, InfraVest has transferred all new wind power projects and development activities in Taiwan to WPD Group. Before that InfraVest has developed the award winning two WPD offshore projects in Yunlin (700MW) and Guanyin (350MW)

The Group is still the majority shareholder of the above mentioned onshore wind parks and PV projects, thus owning the biggest portfolio of renewable assets in Taiwan.

Based on its experience being in charge of turn-key construction of wind parks developed by the InfraVest Group in Taiwan over 10 years and having built ca. 400 MW wind parks and PV projects Steelcomp is now planning to build the world's most modern and advanced offshore wind tower manufacturing facility.

The Group takes advantages of its rich experiences of the last 20 years doing business in Taiwan and is now supporting the localization scheme of the Taiwan Government. From late 2017 Steelcomp has been actively pursuing this goal and decided to team up with the European leader in offshore wind tower manufacturing (with a ca. 50% market share in global offshore wind power tower business), to build the world most modern and advanced offshore tower manufacturing factory in Taiwan.

Furthermore, the Group plans to introduce the most innovative offshore wind foundation technology, which may bring some disruptive changes in offshore wind industry and enables Taiwan to play a leading role in this field as well. To speed this up, Steelcomp envisages setting up two prototypes of this innovative foundation near the planned site of the tower factory in Taiwan.
