Siemens Gamesa has been confirmed as turbine supplier for WPD's 640MW Yunlin offshore wind farm in Taiwan.

The project will feature 80 of the 8.0-167 model, with the manufacturer also providing a 15-year long-term service agreement.

 

Construction is expected to start in 2019, with turbine installation beginning in 2020.
