Siemens Gamesa has reached an agreement with Tawanese group Hai Long Offshore Wind to deploy offshore wind turbines at its 300MW wind power plant.
The project site is located approximately 50 km off the coast of Changhua County. The first 300 MW will serve as an anchor for Siemens Gamesa to expand its local footprint and supply base in Taiwan into a regional industrial hub.
The deployment of the new turbine for the rest of the 1,044 MW Hai Long pipeline is also being considered, said the statement from the company.
The exact number of units for the first 300 MW of the project remains to be confirmed based on site-specific conditions.
The Hai Long offshore wind power plant was awarded through the 2018 grid allocation mechanism in Taiwan.
