Siemens Gamesa has signed a turbine supply agreement and service and availability agreements with the Hai Long offshore wind project in Taiwan.

The agreement covers three offshore wind projects with a combined capacity of 1.04GW.

“The turbine supply agreement is both the biggest construction contract that will ever be awarded for the Hai Long project, as well as an enabler of the expansion of Siemens Gamesa’s nacelle factory.

“This plays a crucial role in our localisation efforts and shall become a cornerstone of Taiwan’s local offshore wind supply chain.”

Under the agreement, Siemens Gamesa has signed a 15-year service contract and has the option to extend this to 20 years.

It will also provide offshore logistics and operations and maintenance (O&M) services for all three projects.

Siemens Gamesa offshore business CEO Marc Becker said: “The Siemens Gamesa – Hai Long collaboration lights the way for more great developments in the Taiwanese offshore wind industry.

“We’re keen to deliver these projects and extend our position in leading the Taiwanese offshore revolution.

“We’re also excited that our expanded offshore facility in Taichung will be able to support this agreement following its intended conversion into a firm order.”
