Siemens Gamesa has successfully completed the expansion of its Taichung Nacelle Plant in Taiwan, a development marked by an event attended by President Tsai Ing-wen, Presidential Advisor Shen Rong-jin, and Presidential Secretary-General Lin Chia-lung, among other dignitaries, on February 1st.
In a LinkedIn post, President Tsai Ing-wen acknowledged Siemens Gamesa as the wind turbine manufacturer with the most significant investment in Taiwan. She stated, “Siemens Gamesa is the wind turbine manufacturer with the most investment in Taiwan. In the second quarter of this year, they will start using the second phase of the factory, continuing to deepen the supply chain in Taiwan and bringing more potential to the industry development.”
Niels Steenberg, Siemens Gamesa’s Executive General Manager for Offshore in the Asia-Pacific region, provided insights into the company’s future plans, saying, “We will carry out full nacelle production and assembly at the Taichung nacelle factory in the second quarter of this year, cooperate with local suppliers, jointly enter the development of the third phase of offshore wind power blocks, and enhance the value of the industry chain.”
The expansion of the Taichung Nacelle Plant positions Siemens Gamesa to manufacture nacelles for its SG 14-222DD offshore wind turbines. This strategic move underscores the company’s commitment to the Taiwan market and aligns with its efforts to strengthen collaboration with local partners, contributing to the growth and development of the offshore wind power sector in the region.
