SGRE to open assembly facility in Taiwan

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) plans to open a nacelle assembly facility in Taiwan.

This is the first nacelle assembly facility that SGRE will build outside of Europe. The lease for 30,000 sq m of land in the port of Taichung was signed with Taiwan International Ports Corporation.

Construction of the facility will begin in 2020, with nacelle production planned to start in 2021.

The facility will support Ørsted’s 900 MW Greater Changhua 1 & 2a project, for which the SG 8.0-167 DD turbine will be used. In later years, it will provide an option for the supply of nacelles to other regional projects.

Andreas Nauen, ceo of the offshore business unit at SGRE, said the construction of a base in Taiwan demonstrates the company’s confidence in the long-term potential of offshore wind power in the country and other Asia Pacific markets.

SGRE currently has offshore nacelle assembly and manufacturing facilities in Germany and Denmark.
