Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has won another large order in North America for turbines in its 4MW-class, this time to supply an undisclosed customer for a wind project in Canada with a capacity of 194MW.
The German-Spanish wind OEM will deliver and commission 43 of its SG 4.5-145 turbines with flexible rating up to 4.8MW.
“The new SG 4.5-145 turbine will provide extremely cost competitive and clean energy to the consumers and communities of Canada,” said David Hickey, head of the manufacturer’s business in Canada.
The order follows up on a 487MW mega-order by EDF Renewables made public Thursday, which is also mostly for machines in the 4MW class, which are increasingly gaining traction in the US as well.
The turbines for the Canadian wind project come with 71-meter-long blades, and will be the most powerful turbines with the largest rotor installed in the country, Siemens Gamesa claims.
Blades integrate aerodynamics and noise reduction features, including the DinoTails technology for reduced noise emission levels.
With more than 3GW already installed, Siemens Gamesa is the market leader in Canada.
