ALE – Giant JV Handles Farmosa 1 Foundations

ALE and Giant Taiwan have undertaken a joint venture to provide the onshore handling, transportation and storage of wind turbine foundations for phase 2 of Taiwan’s Formosa 1 wind farm project.

This phase is seeing 20 additional turbines installed 6km off Miaoli County in the Taiwan Strait.

ALE – Giant’s 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.

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