Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has reached financial close with its customers to supply additional 120MW of capacity to the offshore wind power plant Formosa 1 Phase 2 in Taiwan.
The contracts signed earlier this year include the supply and installation of the turbines and a 15-year full service agreement. Siemens Gamesa will install all 20 units of its SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines already in 2019. Once commissioned, the total capacity of Formosa 1 will be 128MW. The customer for Formosa 1 Phase 2 is an owner’s consortium including Macquarie Capital, Ørsted, and lead developer Swancor Renewable Energy Co. The project is located around six kilometers off the west coast of the Miaoli district in the Taiwan Strait with water depths between 15 to 30 meters. The Siemens Gamesa wind turbines will be installed on monopile foundations.
