SGRE will deliver approximately 112 SG 8.0-167 DD offshore wind turbines to Ørsted’s 900MW projects in Greater Changhua with offshore construction planned to start in 2021. As part of the contractual agreement with Ørsted, SGRE has committed to establishing a local nacelle assembly facility by 2021, subject to the signature of the contract.   

This is SGRE’s largest order of its kind in the Asia Pacific region. Under a partnership between CS Wind and Taiwanese Chin Fong Machine Industrial, towers for these wind turbines will be manufactured locally by Chin Fong at its Taichung Harbour facilities. For more than two years, Ørsted has dedicated its efforts to develop the offshore wind supply chain in Taiwan. 

Martin Neubert, CEO of Ørsted Offshore Wind, said, “As the market leader in offshore wind, we have more than 20 years of experience in developing local supply chains, and we share the government’s ambition of making the Changhua offshore wind farms not just a cornerstone in Taiwan’s green transition, but also a vehicle for kick-starting a new industry.”
