- 2021/07Taiwan: CTCI Provides Free Covid-19 Rapid Test Kit for Employees to Ensure Workplace SafetyDue to the persistent Covid-19 pandemic and the decision to protect our employees, following a rapid testing program in cooperation with Taipei Medical University Hospital on June 15, CTCI now offers free Covid-19 rapid test kit for employees to take at home starting from July, hoping to strengthen pandemic prevention and ensure colleagues’ safety and health at work.
The Covid-19 rapid test kit offered to employees is CTCI’s latest measure to protect the health and work safety of all employees, aiming to better protect employees’ health and realize workplace safety management.
Other prevention measures already in place include reroute, work shifts, campaigns for frequent hand hygiene and performing disinfections, video conferencing, and pandemic insurance. We even developed an app named “myCTCI”, where all colleagues, whether work-from-home or at the office, are able to report health status online for immediate tracking purpose.
- 2021/06Taiwan: CTCI Launches Covid-19 Rapid Testing to Better Protect Its EmployeesDue to the persistent Covid-19 pandemic in Taiwan and the decision to protect our employees, CTCI has officially launched a rapid testing program for over 5,000 employees across the group on June 15 by setting up a “healthy test station” at the CTCI headquarters.
According to CTCI’s Group Coronavirus Prevention Center, the test station will be able to handle tests of 800 to 900 people daily beginning on June 15 and ending on June 18, with possibility of extension depending on the severity of the pandemic. Employees who live in pandemic “hotspots” are given priority to receive tests. This is a non-compulsory program; however, we expect that as many employees as possible will be tested.
The testing program is CTCI’s latest measure to protect the health and work safety of all employees, in addition to the reroute, work shifts, and pandemic insurance which have been well in place.
- 2021/06Taiwan: CTCI MAC Completes 48 Pin Piles for CFXD Offshore Wind Farm Significantly Ahead of ScheduleCTCI Machinery Corporation (CTCI MAC), a CTCI subsidiary company, announced today that it has completed the manufacturing and passed acceptance inspection on completion of all 48 pin piles contracted for Changfang & Xidao (CFXD) Offshore Wind Farm Phase 1 in Taiwan, one and half months ahead of schedule. Thanks to CTCI MAC’s efficient and quality work, the CFXD Project is on track to begin marine work this June and complete first-phase offshore turbine installation by June 2022. The CFXD Offshore Wind Farm in total will have a capacity of 600 MW providing green energy enough to power 600,000 Taiwanese households.
Yun-Peng Tan, CTCI MAC Chairman, says: “It takes careful planning and trial manufacturing to provide such large number of pin piles in a short timeframe. We used multiple submerged arc-welding machines simultaneously to greatly cut manufacturing time. We have earned praise from the client for our efficient and quality work, and are confident to deliver the second-phase pin piles on schedule and with impeccable quality, thanks to the mature skills and experiences that we now have.”
“CFXD is the first offshore wind farm in Taiwan that fully sources its pin piles from local companies,” says Marina Hsu, Managing Director at CI Wind Power Development Taiwan, the developer of CFXD Project. “CTCI MAC’s performance is simply remarkable.”
According to Dennis Sanou, CEO of CFXD Offshore Wind Farm, “CTCI MAC has set an important milestone for the offshore wind power development in Taiwan by completing pin piles ahead of schedule. It means that this new supply chain has been able to speed up their learning curve from orders that enjoy economies of scale.”
CTCI MAC is responsible for the manufacture of 117 among 186 pin piles in the 600-MW CFXD Offshore Wind Farm, which will see 62 offshore wind turbines. Once the wind farm fully comes online in 2023, it will generate renewable energy enough to power 600,000 households in Taiwan, helping the nation come a step closer to its energy transition goal.
Besides the 48 pin piles completed in this project so far, CTCI MAC has previously completed transition pieces for Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm.
