Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy plans to expand its nacelle assembly facility in Taichung to form a regional offshore wind nacelle industrial hub together with Taiwan-based suppliers. The first project to be supported by the broader manufacturing plant will be the 300 MW Hai Long 2 project. Siemens Gamesa was named as preferred supplier for the offshore wind turbines in November 2019. The facility is currently under construction and will start production in 2021 to deliver nacelles to Orsted’s Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind power project. Once the nacelle assembly work is completed in 2022, Taichung factory expansion will start. It will include doubling the plot area to over 60,000 square meters

In 2019, Siemens Gamesa and Yeong Guan Group sealed an agreement for localized hub and base frame castings for Hai Long 2. YGG will build a new global casting production factory for offshore wind in Taichung, neighboring Siemens Gamesa’s plot.

Additionally, Siemens Gamesa has now signed four conditional contracts for the localization of six different type of nacelle components for Hai Long 2.

KK Wind Solutions will invest in a new production plant in Taiwan, as well as in the recruitment and the training of a local workforce to enable knowledge transfer. The factory will manufacture uninterruptible power supplies and power conversion systems.

SINBON will extend its existing footprint with a new production line in Taiwan for cable manufacturing.

Atech, together with an existing global supplier, will provide nacelle canopies and spinners. A new production line will be set-up in Taiwan accordingly. This collaboration will combine strong offshore wind expertise with local market knowledge and production capabilities.

Würth will leverage its existing footprint in Taiwan and strong local supplier network to locally procure fasteners.
