Siemens Gamesa stands to receive another order from Taiwan. Although it is still signed with a pencil rather than pen, the wind turbine manufacturer has been chosen as preferred supplier to the 376 MW Formosa 2 project. Besides delivery and installation – pending the final investment decision by the awarding consortium, Macquarie Capital and Swancor Renewable Energy – Siemens Gamesa signed a 20-year service agreement on the wind turbines, announces the company.

"We are delighted to continue our close collaboration with Swancor and Macquarie in Taiwan, which started on Formosa 1, Taiwan's very first offshore wind power project. Siemens Gamesa is committed to the success of those early developments, which will lay the foundations for a prosperous and sustainable offshore wind industry in the market," says Siemens Gamesa Executive General Manager Offshore for Asia-Pacific Niels Steenberg.
