Siemens Gamesa Contracts FairWind for Turbine Pre-Assembly

Siemens Gamesa has contracted FairWind for turbine pre-assembly work for the Borssele 1+2 offshore wind project in the Netherlands and the Yunlin project in Taiwan.

The work for Borssele will take place at the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark, with pre-assembly of 94 Siemens Gamesa 8.0-167 DD towers planned to begin at the start of 2020, including the high voltage scope and HSBM.

FairWind will also be involved in the pre-assembly of 80 Siemens Gamesa 8.0-167 DD towers at the Port of Taichung in Taiwan for the Yunlin project in 2020/2021, also including the high voltage scope and HSBM.

Due to the announced work at Taichung, FairWind will continue to expand its team of Taiwanese technicians. The recruitment process has begun, with meetings scheduled in early January 2020.

“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,” said Per Friis, Head of Offshore at FairWind.

“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.”

This year, FairWind was involved in the pre-assembly of 87 towers for Siemens Gamesa for the Hohe See and Albatros offshore wind projects, as well as of 20 Siemens Gamesa SWT-6.0-154 turbines for the Formosa 1 Phase 2 project, which marked the company’s first in Taiwan.
