FairWind is proud to announce the awarding of two projects from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy to collaborate on pre-assembly work on offshore wind turbines for the Borssele project in the Netherlands and Yunlin in Taiwan.
The projects expand and continue offshore activities completed between the two companies in 2019.
Hervé Bouraima, Global Commodity Manager, Siemens Gamesa Offshore Project Procurement said:
“We are happy to continue our collaboration with FairWind on both markets where they have already demonstrated excellent execution and adaptability capabilities. With regards to Taiwan, we look forward to continuing working with FairWind to build more local content on that important market for Siemens Gamesa.”
The work for Borssele will take place at the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark, with pre-assembly of 94 SG 8.0-167 DD towers planned to begin at the start of 2020, including HV (high voltage) scope and HSBM.
In 2019, FairWind was involved in the pre-assembly of 87 towers for Siemens Gamesa at Esbjerg for the Hohe See/Albatros offshore projects.
FairWind will also be involved in the pre-assembly of 80 SG 8.0-167 DD towers at the Port of Taichung in Taiwan for the Yunlin Project in 2020/2021, including HV (high voltage) scope and HSBM.
In October, 2019 FairWind completed pre-assembly work on 20 units of Siemens Gamesa’s SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines for the 120 MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 project. This was FairWind’s first project in Taiwan, involving the establishment of a local branch out of Taipei, including a full organizational setup.
FairWind hired and trained Taiwanese technicians, conducted through their training entity European Wind Academy Sp. z o. o. and including on-site preparation in Europe.
As a result of the announced work at Taichung, FairWind will continue to expand their team of Taiwanese technicians. The recruitment process has already begun, with meetings scheduled with candidates in early January 2020.
In the last year, Siemens Gamesa has received firm orders for close to 2 GW of offshore wind power projects in Taiwan.
“We look forward to continuing the constructive cooperation we have had with Siemens Gamesa, as well as partners BMS Heavy Cranes A/S, and Sevenstar in Taiwan. FairWind’s emphasis on creating quality solutions closely with our client, supported by our global capability and track record in establishing new regions, has resulted in a successful expansion of our activities in the offshore wind energy business in Taiwan and Europe. We welcome back our technicians and site management in Esbjerg and Taichung, who have proven they can provide the quality, HSE, and milestones expected by our client,” said Per Friis, Head of Offshore.
