Siemens Gamesa has awarded its first contracts for locally produced content to be used for offshore wind projects in Taiwan. For the second phase of the Formosa 1 wind farm, chemical producer Swancor – which is also the project's co-developer – will supply resin for 60 turbine blades. Siemens Gamesa's frequent supplier of turbine towers, CS Wind, in cooperation with Taiwanese Chin Fong Machine Industries, will produce 80 towers for wpd's Yunlin project, writes Siemens Gamesa in a press statement.
"Signing our first firm purchase order for local turbine components in Taiwan is a watershed moment for Siemens Gamesa. We’re proud to do so with our long-term partner and industry pioneer Swancor, moving the Taiwanese offshore wind supply chain forward together. We’re furthermore looking forward to expanding our collaboration with Swancor in making Taiwan an offshore wind center in Asia-Pacific," writes Andreas Nauen, Siemens Gamesa's Offshore CEO.
