Siemens Gamesa’s largest offshore agreement in Taiwan to date has been now extended to 1,044 MW to cover the second and third part of the projects i.e. Hai Long 2B of 232 MW capacity and Hai Long 3 of 512 MW capacity respectively.

In November 2019, the company had signed a preferred supplier agreement with customer Hai Long Offshore Wind Project (Hai Long) for first part of the project i.e. Hai Long 2A of 300 MW capacity.

Flagship SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines and service for the full volume of the project are included in the preferred supplier agreement. These turbines have been planned to be installed 50 km off the coast of Changhua County. Each turbine will have a capacity of 14 MW and feature a rotor diameter of 222 meters using 108-meter long Siemens Gamesa IntegralBlades.

However, the agreement remains subject to contract and final investment decision from Hai Long consortium partners i.e. Canadian independent power producer Northland Power and Taiwan-based developer Yushan Energy jointly owned by Mitsui & Co Ltd in Japan and Yushan Energy Pte Ltd in Singapore. This is expected in 2022.

Commenting on project expansion, Marc Becker, CEO of Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit, said “we are proud to strengthen our relationship with Northland Power and Yushan Energy on this highly significant project, where we will deploy our game-changing SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbine. Together, we are positively impacting the expansion of the global offshore wind industry, benefitting the local market and society-at-large at the same time.”

Meanwhile, the company is currently constructing a Nacelle Assembly Facility in Taichung, towards start production in Q3 CY2021. With the conditional approval of the Hai Long 2A Industrial Relevance Proposal, a factory expansion will start in 2022, subject to final investment decision by the project partners.
