Taipei, Oct. 3 (CNA) Siemens Gamesa, a Spanish company that provides renewable energy solutions worldwide, on Wednesday signed two separate deals with Taiwanese companies to procure components for a wind power project in Taiwan.
Under the first deal, Swancor Renewable Energy Co. agreed to supply resin to Siemens Gamesa, one of three foreign companies among the seven contracted by the Taiwan government to build 10 offshore wind power farms.
The agreement was signed at a press conference by Andreas Nauen, CEO of the Offshore Business Unit of Siemens Gamesa, and Robert Tsai (蔡朝陽), chairman of Swancor Renewable Energy.
At the signing, Nauen said he hoped the deal would help make Taiwan a bigger player in the supply chain of the global offshore wind power industry and boost its chances of becoming a hub of the industry in the Asia-Pacific region. [FULL STORY]
