Siemens' SWT-4.0-130 turbine will be used at Gemini

Offshore power specialist CG said it and consortium partners have been handed a deal worth more than €150m ($204m) to deliver substations for the 600MW Gemini wind farm in Dutch waters.

CG, Fabricom and Iemants will design and install two high-voltage (HV) substations plus one onshore, with work due to wrap up in 2016.

CG, a subsidiary of India’s Avantha Group, said its chunk of the contract amounts to about 30%. It will design the HV system and link the onshore substation to the Dutch grid.

CG has already carried out work on offshore wind substation projects including Belwind, Northwind and Humber Gateway.

The consortium was awarded the contract by Van Oord, which will build Gemini as well as hold a 10% stake in the project.

Siemens, which is supplying its 4MW wind turbines, is also a partner in Gemini, which is majority-owned by Canada’s Northland Power.
