EBR Staff Writer Published 01 November 2017

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has been selected by undisclosed customer to supply different types of wind turbines for five onshore wind projects in the US.

The firm agreed to supply 310 of wind turbines with various output ratings and rotor diameters for projects which have combined generation capacity of more than 780MW.

Under the contract, Siemens Gamesa will deliver a total of 92 units of the SWT-2.3-108, 144 units of the SWT-2.625-120 and 74 units of the G126-2.625 MW wind turbines for installation at various project sites.

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Onshore CEO Ricardo Chocarro said: “These orders demonstrate the confidence that our customers have in our combined product offerings.

“With our strong product portfolio we are able to provide competitive products meeting our customers’ specific needs in North America, a market that is critical to the success of this company.”

The five wind projects will have capacity to produce clean electricity required to power nearly 240,000 US homes.

SGRE plans to assemble the nacelles and hubs for the SWT-2.3-108 and SWT-2.625-120 at its factory in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Majority of the blades for the five projects are planned to be manufactured at the company’s blade facility in Fort Madison, Iowa, US.

In the US, the firm has installed more than 9,000 wind turbines with combined capacity of over 17GW.

Recently, Siemens Gamesa has agreed to supply and install 67 units of OptimaFlex wind turbine type SWT-DD-130 for the 281MW Nordlicht wind project in Norway.
