MHI Vestas and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) have secured a 5000 square metre site located centrally in zone 1 of Taichung Harbour adjacent to the pre-assembly quayside of CIP’s Changfang & Xidao Offshore Wind Project, intended for assembly activities for some of the projects to be delivered in Taiwan using V174 technology.
This site is being leased from Fortune Extra High Voltage, a subsidiary of Fortune Electric, and will be prepared for MHI Vestas’ operations. For certain MHI Vestas projects, turbine hub assembly is expected to be carried out on the site, as well as final nacelle-related assembly and testing. Hub assembly activities at the site will involve some of the offshore wind components made locally in Taiwan, including hub plates from Yeong Guan Energy Technology Group (YGG) and spinner covers from the Atech / Fassmer (FACT) joint venture. The site comes with space for assembly of turbines, warehouse and office space, along with additional capacity for storage of components. The building is also equipped with overhead cranes and adequate land bearing capacity, to transport large offshore wind turbine components around the site.
