ZAMUDIO, Spain – Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) and Hai Long Offshore Wind have signed a preferred supplier agreement for the delivery and servicing of turbines on the 300 MW-Hai Long 2 project.
The agreement is subject to contract and final investment decision from the consortium partners, Canadian independent power producer Northland Power Inc. and Taiwan-based developer Yushan Energy.
The 300-MW Hai Long 2 offshore wind power plant project was awarded through the 2018 grid allocation mechanism in Taiwan. The project site is about 50 km (31 mi) off the coast of Changhua County.
The company will use its existing footprint and supply base in Taiwan in order to fulfil localization requirements on the project. Offshore construction is expected to begin in 2023.
In the last year, the company has received firm orders for close to 2 GW of offshore wind power projects in Taiwan.
SGRE also recently confirmed plans to build a facility in the port of Taichung. It will be used for offshore nacelle assembly, testing, warehousing, office buildings, and outdoor storage, the production of which is planned to start in 2021.
