Taiwan offshore wind farm will be first to use Siemens Gamesa’s new 14MW turbine

Siemens Gamesa has been lined up to deliver its new 14MW turbine for the 300MW Hai Long 2 offshore wind farm off Taiwan. The manufacturer said deployment of the 14-222 DD machine is also being considered for the other 744MW phases of the project.

The exact number of units for the first 300MW stage of the project remains to be confirmed based on site-specific conditions and the preferred supplier agreement is subject to contract and final investment decision from the developer, Siemens Gamesa added.

Hai Long is being developed by a consortium of Canadian independent power producer Northland Power and Taiwan-based developer Yushan Energy, which is jointly owned by Japan’s Mitsui & Co and Singapore’s Yushan Energy.

Nacelle production for Hai Long 2 will start in Taichung in 2024, and turbine installation will follow thereafter, Siemens Gamesa said. The company said the nacelle production setup in Taiwan will play a central role in the introduction of the latest turbine technologies in Asia Pacific.

Siemens Gamesa offshore chief executive Andreas Nauen said: “Taking the next step in advancing the Hai Long 2 project by announcing that it will conditionally use the 14-222 DD offshore wind turbine is outstanding news. We are thrilled that the Hai Long partners have chosen our newest machine, and are very excited to work closely in making this project the first installation of the 14-222 DD in Asia Pacific.”
