ALE and Giant Taiwan have undertaken a joint venture to provide the onshore handling, transportation and storage of wind turbine foundations for phase 2 of Taiwan’s Formosa 1 wind farm project.
This phase is seeing 20 additional turbines installed 6 kilometres off Miaoli County in the Taiwan Strait, raising its power generation capability from its current 8MW to 120MW.
Key phases of this project included the transportation and load-out of monopiles from their point of fabrication in Rostock, Germany, the development of earthquake-resilient storage facilities at the Port of Taichung, Taiwan, and the load-in of both monopiles and transition pieces there. These items are currently in the process of installation by the offshore vessel Seaway Yudin. The total project is scheduled to have a duration of eight months.
