Under the terms of the Letter of Intent, FairWind will hire and train Taiwanese technicians in order to be ready for pre-assembly operations on Formosa 1 Phase 2, scheduled to begin in the spring of 2019. Both companies intend to create local know-how for future projects.

The 120 MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 project consists of 20 units of Siemens Gamesa’s SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines, with installation set for 2019. The site is located around six kilometers off the west coast of the Miaoli district in the Taiwan Strait with water depths in the range of 15 to 30 meters.

“As the outlook for offshore wind in Taiwan is firming up, local know-how will be key in creating value for the market and the society. Therefore, it is important for us to work towards training local technicians already for Taiwan’s first commercial scale project, Formosa 1 Phase 2. With FairWind as a partner for the project we are confident that we’ll jointly meet this objective, and deliver high quality according to our customer’s expectations,” said Hervé Bouraima, Global Commodity Manager, Strategic Procurement, Offshore at Siemens Gamesa.

“In FairWind we see this as very much aligned with our core values and our ability to work as a partner in the wind business, creating solutions in close cooperation with our client. Our track record, capabilities and references in establishing and creating new regions have given FairWind the sufficient know-how to succeed in new markets like Taiwan. We are excited to be awarded this project and are looking forward to delivering the FairWind way” Glenn Aagesen, COO FairWind Offshore stated.
