Acteon continues serving complete sub-sea solutions for offshore in Pacific



Acteon, a company specializied as a subsea service provider, supports all stages of the life cycle of offshore wind farms. Acteon, which provides services on a global scale for the installation, maintenance and removal of marine infrastructures, starts its solutions in wind farms from the field investigation evaluation phase. Focusing on solving the challenges of transitioning to clean energy with engineering solutions, the company provides end-to-end services in the offshore industry as an integrated subsea specialist.

The wind energy industry met in Tokyo with Wind Expo, the largest wind energy event in Japan, between 15-17 March. Acteon Group’s Asia General Manager, LJ Pan, whom we interviewed at Wind Expo Japan, where we were a media partner as Wind Energy Magazine, shared the company’s activities and solutions in wind energy with our magazine.

Can you introduce yourself and tell a little bit about your technology?

I’m LJ, and work for Acteon Group. I’m the General Manager Asia for Acteon. Acteon Group specializing in subsea service providers for offshore wind. So as Acteon Group, we support all phases of the lifecycle of offshore wind farms development. For supporting the wind farms development, we start from the site investigation assessment phase. During the site investigation assessment phase, we can provide the geophy- sical & geotechnical site investigation. After the site investigation phase, we support the design & engineering phase. During the design & engineering phase, we can support the developer in the foundation design & engineering scopes . Next phase is the development phase for foundation installation offshore. During the development phase, Acteon Group support the T&I installer in the foundation installation scopes such as pile driving utilizing our impact hammers, drilling equipment, prepiling template, handling & lifting tools and grouting services.

As for floating wind, Acteon can support the design, provision and installation of mooring and anchor. After the development phase, we move to the operation & maintenance phase. During the operation & maintenance phase, we can support the Balance of Plant subsea O&M scopes which include the structural health monitoring, corrosion monitoring, ROV inspections, asset integrity management and digital twins services.

Lastly, after 20-30 years of the installation of wind turbines, Acteon can support the decommissioning of the wind farms. So this is a brief introduction of Acteon and what we can do for your offshore wind farm developments.

We can say you serve complete solutions from beginning to end.

Yes. This is where we call ourselves the integrated subsea specialists. We are providing special- ties, equipment and services. But we do not own any vessels and the vessel will be from T&I contractor, which owns the installation vessel. We are able provide all the installation and all the support during the development.

At the moment, at which market are you active in?

We have been very active for the past 4 years in Taiwan. I’m taking care of the Asia market and we have colleagues who take care of Europe and US markets. So we walk together as globally and we are actively supporting or have supported most of the development wind farms in Taiwan such as Formosa-1, Formosa-2, Changfang Xidao, Greater Changhua and others.

How do you foresee the Turkish market?

This is a very new market and we are excited to know that Turkey is coming out in the offshore wind market. And as you know, lots of countries and regions are moving into offshore renewable energy. Thus. Acteon needs to increase our capability in order to support regions like Turkey in its developments of wind farms.

After our conversation and information about Turkey to you, do you think you company will fo- cus more on Turkish market in the short term?

I think this is something we need to understand and investigate further from the Turkish government, what is the ambition and regulations, then we only can relocate our resources as well as our assets into the market.

Thank you for your time and for the interview. No problem, my pleasure. Thank you very much.
