 Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) and the Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to begin a collaborative investigation into the development of areas of the Taichung harbour in Taiwan for the Offshore wind business.

  The non-binding MoU covers investigations of a potential manufacturing site for offshore wind components, office facilities, and staging areas including storage, pre-assembly, and quayside load-out.

  "Signing the MoU demonstrates our strong desire to contribute to the development of offshore wind in Taiwan. We fully believe in the potential of this emerging market, and wish to support it with our vast knowledge as an industry leader," said, Andreas Nauen, CEO Offshore, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.

  Furthermore, SGRE opened a new office location in Taipei, aimed at increasing offshore wind customer responsiveness in Asia-Pacific (APAC) excluding mainland China. The office will act as the offshore wind regional hub, and together with other regional offices in Japan and Korea, it will deliver the latest offshore wind and service portfolios.
