Hai Long Offshore Wind intends to utilize Siemens Gamesa’s brand-new SG 14-222 DD overseas wind generator at the upcoming 300 MW Hai Long 2 job in Taiwan.
The implementation of the new wind turbine for the remainder of the 1,044 MW Hai Long pipe is also being taken into consideration, Siemens Gamesa claimed.
The specific number of units for the initial 300 MW of the project stays to be verified based on site-specific conditions.
The preferred vendor arrangement as introduced in November 2019 stays subject to contract as well as final investment decision from the consortium companions, Canadian independent power producer Northland Power Inc. and also Taiwan-based designer Yushan Energy, jointly possessed by Mitsui & Co., Ltd. in Japan as well as Yushan Energy Pte. Ltd. in Singapore.
The Hai Long offshore wind power plant was granted with the 2018 grid allowance mechanism in Taiwan. The task site lies approximately 50 kilometres off the shore of Changhua Area.
The initial 300 MW will certainly serve as a support for Siemens Gamesa to broaden its neighborhood footprint and also supply base in Taiwan into a local industrial hub, the wind turbine manufacturer stated.
As revealed individually, nacelle production for the Hai Long 2 task will begin in Taichung in 2024, as well as turbine installation will certainly adhere to thereafter.
“Taking the following action in progressing the Hai Long 2 job by revealing that it will conditionally make use of the SG 14-222 DD offshore wind generator is impressive news. We are thrilled that the Hai Long partners have actually chosen our latest machine, as well as are extremely thrilled to work carefully in making this project the initial setup of the SG 14-222 DD in Asia Pacific,” stated Andreas Nauen, Offshore Chief Executive Officer at Siemens Gamesa.
Subject to Hai Long 2’s Industrial Importance Proposition approval, Siemens Gamesa recently exposed strategies to increase its Taichung impact into a local industrial hub for offshore wind nacelles, along with Taiwan-based suppliers.
This nacelle production setup in Taiwan will play a main function in the introduction of the current generator modern technologies in Asia Pacific, starting with the giant SG 14-222 DD for the Hai Long 2 task, Siemens Gamesa stated.
“We are really pleased to be able and also disclose the intended implementation of this giant wind turbine in Taiwan with the Hai Long partners. It matches our shared vision to establish a competitive as well as lasting overseas wind hub below for the remainder of the area,” said Niels Steenberg, Exec General Manager of Siemens Gamesa Offshore for Asia-Pacific.
