Siemens Gamesa has completed the €613m ($613m) sale of its large southern European project development pipeline to UK utility SSE.

The sale includes onshore wind projects in France, Greece, Italy and Spain with a combined capacity of 3.8GW – with the possibility to develop up to 1.4GW of co-located PV projects.

The manufacturer as part of the deal will be able to partner with SSE Renewables on the provision of turbines and associated long-term maintenance services for part of the wind farms to be installed and operated by the utility in the next few years.
