Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy today held a launch ceremony with local government authorities and wind industry partners in Taiwan for what will be the company’s first offshore nacelle assembly facility outside of Europe. Construction is due to begin in 2020 at the site located in the port of Taichung. This represents an important milestone for the company in the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region. Siemens Gamesa currently has offshore nacelle assembly and manufacturing facilities in Germany and Denmark.

The parcel of land being developed in Taiwan measures over 30,000 square meters, and will be used for nacelle assembly, testing, warehousing, office buildings, and outdoor storage. Siemens Gamesa is also working closely with Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) to establish inbound and outbound logistics in newly-established quaysides nearby.

Construction is planned to begin in 2020, and production in 2021. The facility will then support Ørsted’s 900 MW Greater Changhua 1 & 2a project, for which the SG 8.0-167 DD turbine will be used. In later years, it will provide an option for the supply of nacelles to other regional projects.

“Thanks to this nacelle assembly facility, we will be creating more opportunities of working with the growing localized supplier network as well as developing a skilled offshore workforce. All these efforts will contribute to building a competitive local supply chain, in line with international standards in terms of safety, costs, quality, and making Taiwan a leading offshore market,” says Niels Steenberg, General Manager of Siemens Gamesa Offshore for Asia-Pacific.

The long-term collaboration between SGRE and TIPC was first officialized in December 2017 via a Memorandum of Understanding. Both parties agreed to cooperate towards developing Taichung harbor for the offshore wind power industry.

In 2016, Siemens Gamesa erected Taiwan’s first two offshore turbines composing the 8 MW Formosa 1 Phase 1 project. The company is currently installing the subsequent phase, the 120 MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 project. This is Taiwan’s first commercial-scale offshore wind power project, and features 20 SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines. Siemens Gamesa has signed contracts in Asia Pacific for close to 2 GW of offshore wind power projects for the years to come, including 1.5 GW of confirmed orders.

In the UK, Deutsche Windtechnik started service for Senvion turbines.

The UK subsidiary of Deutsche Windtechnik is expanding its national portfolio by providing O&M for 5 wind farms operated by Innogy Renewables UK. Besides Siemens, AN Bonus and NEG Micon, the independent service provider now counts also Senvion wind turbines as part of its knowledge base in the UK, and hence follows the path of the other Deutsche Windtechnik units. The group serves more than 400 wind turbines of all Senvion-productions series, onshore as well as offshore.


New contracts enlarge service infrastructure in the UK

The new maintenance contracts in the UK cover a total of 40 Senvion wind turbines – for MM70, MM82 and MM92 – and run for three years each. The proximity of the wind farms gives Deutsche Windtechnik the opportunity to install cross-park service structures in the northern regions of England including a warehouse and local office. Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. will employ additional service teams, engineers and supervisors with a broad expertise in Senvion technology, with the first teams already having been employed. With this reinforcement the total number of employees in the UK business unit reaches 100.

Knowledge transfer provides bases for high-quality Senvion service

Billy Stevenson, Managing Director of Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd., is convinced that this milestone will be further proof that the ISP is capable of delivering the highest level of service quality:”Within the Deutsche Windtechnik Group we cover Senvion wind turbines with a capacity of 590 MW already. We have a very close knowledge transfer with the Training Center and engineering department of Deutsche Windtechnik in Germany, so we guarantee a top level service quality starting with the first day of the term.” After winning the Innogy Supplier Award in the Quality Global category, Deutsche Windtechnik is prepared to underline the standard of high quality in its everyday core competencies.

The Puerto Libertad photovoltaic plant in the State of Sonora (México) will see its capacity increased by 50% to 339 MWp (270 MW rated capacity) following the signature of a private purchase agreement between the joint venture that owns the project (participated at 50% by Acciona Energia and Tuto Energy) and the company Tuto Energy Trading. The final destination of the energy, representing 112 MWp (90 MW rated capacity), will be the facilities of a major Mexican industrial group.

The first phase of the project – for 227 MWp (180 MW rated capacity) – has already been allocated to the CFE (Federal Electricity Commission) following the award made in the second energy auction held in September 2016.


The recently-signed contract – the first private one under the new Law on the Electric Power Sector in Mexico– completes the photovoltaic plant, on which construction will begin in the last trimester of 2017, with its entry into service planned for the first semester of 2019.

Acciona will carry out the EPC for the plant

Overall, the Puerto Libertad photovoltaic plant will produce electricity equivalent to the annual consumption of 489,000 Mexican homes and avoid the emission of over 776,000 metric tons of CO2 from coal-fired power stations, creating a cleaning effect on the atmosphere equivalent to 39 million trees through the process of photosynthesis.

Acciona Energia will carry out the turnkey construction of the plant in the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) modality. The company has a long track record as a developer, constructor and operator of large photovoltaic plants in several countries: Chile, South Africa, Portugal, Australia and Spain.

Ingeteam has been awarded a further contract for the first commercial-scale solar thermal plant to be built in China. The company had already been awarded an initial contract for the basic engineering for this plant and has now won a further contract for the detailed engineering of the solar farm.

This is the first commercial-scale solar thermal plant in China, developed by CGN Delingha Solar Energy Co Ltd. The plant covers a total surface area of 250 hectares and is expected to start operating at the end of 2017. With a power output of 50MW, the plant stands out for its 7.5 hour, 1,300 MWt thermal energy storage capacity based on a molten salt tank system. The plant will operate for more than 5,000 hours, representing a generation of more than 210 GWh per annum and preventing the annual emission of 200,000 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.


With this new contract, Ingeteam is to develop the detailed engineering for the solar farm, including the process design, mechanics, electrics, instrumentation and control of the solar farm for the Beijing Shouhang IHW Resources Saving Technology Company. Ltd. The plant is located in the province of Qinghai, whose capital city is Xining, in the centre of China at a distance of 1,700 km from Peking. Due to the fact that the province is situated on a high plateau at an altitude of some 3,000 metres, surrounded by mountains, the climate is extreme, with little rainfall, extremely cold winters that can reach -27.9 ºC at the site, and very hot summers.

To date, China has built some small pilot solar thermal plants, directed at developing R&D, but has not commissioned any commercial plants. Ingeteam is therefore present in an expanding market, which has an extensive list of approved projects, forecasting a total power output of 1.35 GW.
