Siemens Gamesa has started producing the blades for the Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind project in Taiwan.

The company said the blades were cast at its Aalborg factory in Denmark using Swancor resin and hardener.

Siemens Gamesa won the contract to supply 20 SWT-6.0-154 turbines, which will produce a capacity of 120MW, for the project in April last year.

In addition to the turbine supply, a 15-year full-service agreement has been signed and includes the provision of spare parts and tools to help ensure the reliability and optimal performance of the turbines.

Recently, Siemens Gamesa signed a Letter of Intent with FairWind to collaborate on turbine pre-assembly.

Formosa 1 Phase 2 is due to be operational in 2020, when it will become Taiwan’s first commercial offshore wind farm. The project will be located some 6km off the west coast of the Miaoli district in the Taiwan Strait.
