Fassmer and Taiwanese company Atech Composites have formed the joint venture FACT – Fassmer Atech Composites Taiwan Co., Ltd. The JV has already signed its first contract.
The composites manufacturer Atech and Fassmer’s wind power division will build nacelle and spinner covers in Kaohsiung City in Taiwan for the growing wind energy sector of the country, Fassmer said. A first contract for the Taiwanese market was signed with MHI Vestas Offshore Wind for nearly one hundred V174-9.5 MW turbines for three offshore wind farms in Taiwan.
One V174-9.5 MW turbine supplies up to 9,000 homes with electricity per year. The production of the first nacelle and spinner covers for MHI Vestas will start this fall in Berne, Germany. The series production follows in the second quarter of 2021 in Taiwan.
As an expert for series production of composites Fassmer has built components for the European wind energy sector since 1998. Atech is specialized in custom-made composites building elements for the yachts of the Horizon Group as well as individual solutions for other industries.
