ALE-Giant Partner on Turbine Foundations for Formosa 1 Wind Farm


This phase is seeing 20 additional turbines installed 6km off Miaoli County in the Taiwan Strait, raising its power generation capability from its current 8MW to 120MW.

Key phases of this project included the transportation and load-out of monopiles from their point of fabrication in Rostock, Germany, the development of earthquake-resilient storage facilities at the Port of Taichung, Taiwan, and the load-in of both monopiles and transition pieces there.

These items are currently in the process of installation by the offshore vessel Seaway Yudin. This work is helping the Taiwanese Government move towards energy independence with a target of achieving 5.5GW clean energy generation capacity by 2025.

Chris Schraa director of ALE Taiwan, commented,By establishing ALE Giant we have fast tracked our localization and have been able to offer ALEs world class services, safety and quality standards while being seen as a local partner from day one

The total project is scheduled to take approximately eight months to complete.
