Siemens Gamesa has been confirmed as the turbine supplier for Taiwan's 640MW Yunlin offshore wind array, after developer Wpd reached a financial close on the project last week.

"We are extremely satisfied that the preferred supplier agreement we reached with Wpd offshore one year ago has materialized into a firm order. It is furthermore encouraging to be able to introduce the SG 8.0-167 DD in APAC with an order of this volume," said Andreas Nauen, chief executive of the Offshore business unit at Siemens Gamesa.
