The 300MW Hai Long 2 offshore wind power plant project was awarded through the 2018 grid allocation mechanism in Taiwan. The project site is located approximately 30km off the coast of Changhua County. The project will utilise SGRE’s existing supply base in Taiwan to fulfil localisation requirements on the project. Offshore construction for the project will begin in 2023.

SGRE also recently confirmed plans to build a facility in the port of Taichung. This will be for offshore nacelle assembly, testing, warehousing, office buildings, and outdoor storage. Production of the facility is planned to start in 2021.

In the last year, SGRE has received firm orders for nearly 2GW of offshore wind power projects in Taiwan. The company supplied and installed the first two turbines in the market in 2016 as part of the first phase of the Formosa 1 offshore wind power project.

Andreas Nauen, Offshore CEO at SGRE, said: “We are very honoured and pleased to announce our collaboration with the Hai Long partners. It represents a stepping-stone for our long-term presence in the region and will enable the expansion of our own local footprint, as well as that of our suppliers.”
