ALE-Giant executes Formosa works

ALE has established a joint venture with Giant Taiwan to handle the movement, transport and storage of wind turbine foundations for the Formosa 1 Phase 2 wind farm.

ALE–Giant’s project scope included the transportation and load-out of monopiles from Rostock, Germany; the development of earthquake-resilient storage facilities at the port of Taichung, Taiwan; and the load-in of monopiles and transition pieces.

The foundations are currently being installed by the offshore vessel Seaway Yudin, 6 km off Miaoli County in the Taiwan Strait.

20 wind turbines will be installed as part of the expansion project. Chris Schraa – director of ALE Taiwan, said: “By establishing ALE – Giant we have fast tracked our localisation and have been able to offer ALE’s world-class services, safety and quality standards while being seen as a local partner from day one.”
