SGRE Wins 200-MW Turbine Order in China
Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (SGRE) has secured a deal to supply 4.X turbines for a 200MW wind farm in China, its first contract for the platform in the market.
The Spanish-German group will deliver 42 machines rated at 4.8MW to the project developed by Xinjiang TBEA Group in Xinjiang, northwest China. The company will also provide operation and maintenance services for five years.
This is the second order that SGRE has received from TBEA, strengthening the partnership between both companies. The 200 MW wind farm is located in the city of Changji, in the region of Xinjiang, northwest China.
The Siemens Gamesa 4.X platform, with its 145 metres rotor variant, is a good fit for the project site conditions featuring medium wind, sandy and dusty weather, and low temperatures during winter time. Commissioning is expected before the end of 2020.
“We’re delighted to see our first project landing in Xinjiang and strengthen our partnership with TBEA to support its expansion in the renewable energy sector. Following a previous Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform order with TBEA earlier this year, this new order reflects the customer’s trust in Siemens Gamesa products, technology and our capability of undertaking complex logistics and project execution” stated Richard Paul Luijendijk, CEO of SGRE Onshore APAC.
SGRE’s presence in China dates back to over 30 years. The company is committed to growing its manufacturing and supplier base in China and providing best-in-class turbines and services to meet customer expectations in the country and other global markets.
In addition to China, SGRE’s footprint in Asia Pacific extends to Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, where it has already installed more than 7.9 GW.
SGRE has also developed strongly in offshore wind in the region following the signing of contracts for close to 2 GW of offshore wind power projects for the years to come, including 1.5 GW of confirmed orders.
