Siemens Gamesa to supply wind turbines worth 120 MW of capacity for Formosa 1 Phase 2

A year after the commissioning of Taiwan’s Formosa 1 Phase 1 offshore wind power plant, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has been contracted to supply an additional 120 MW of capacity for Formosa 1 Phase 2. In addition to the turbine supply agreement, a 15-year full service agreement has also been signed and it includes the provision of spare parts and tools. The installation of the 20 SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines is planned to start in 2019. It will expand the total capacity of the Formosa 1 wind power plant to 128 MW. However, the contracts are subject to financial closure of the project, which is expected by end 2018.
