Siemens Gamesa will install the first batch of its new 5MW model in a repowering project on the Danish island of Thyholm, close to the Limfjord fjord in Denmark.

The OEM will deliver three SG 5.0-132 turbines for the 15MW Torp Vindemoellepark wind farm in the municipality of Struer, which will be the second wind farm in Denmark to be operated without subsidies.

“ We will exchange our three old Bonus wind turbines, each featuring 1MW, from 1999. They have always worked well and with the high wind we have in this area we expect the new wind turbines to give us good production,” said Carl Lyngs from Torp Vind.
