FairWind Joins Siemens Gamesa on Formosa 1 Phase 2

FairWind has signed a Letter of Intent with Siemens Gamesa to collaborate on turbine pre-assembly for the Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind project in Taiwan.

Under the agreement, FairWind will hire and train Taiwanese technicians to prepare them for the pre-assembly operations, which are scheduled to begin in the spring this year.

The training will be carried out through FairWind’s partnership with European Wind Academy and will include on-site preparation in Europe.

The company said it will establish a full organizational setup for both technicians and office employees in the first quarter of the year through a local branch out of Taipei,

“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," said Hervé Bouraima, Global Commodity Manager, Strategic Procurement, Offshore at Siemens Gamesa.

"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."

The Formosa 1 Phase 2 wind farm will comprise 20 Siemens Gamesa 6MW turbines located some 6km off the west coast of the Miaoli district in the Taiwan Strait.

The 120MW project is due to be operational in 2020, when it will become Taiwan’s first commercial offshore wind farm.
