    Siemens Gamesa Inks 62 MW Deal with Tekniska verken

    The strength of the onshore powerhouse Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform has gathered momentum in Sweden heading into 2021 following the signing of a 62 MW deal to supply two adjacent sites in the Sunne region. The deal with local utility firmTekniska verken will cover the supply of 7 SG 5.8-170 turbines at Fryksdalshöjden and 3 of the same turbines at the closeby site of Norra Länsmansberget. These turbines will use a flexible power rating to adjust their nominal power to 6.2 MW, among the most competitive in the industry. They are expected to be installed by late 2022 and will have a 115-meter hub height. The deal also includes a up to 30-year service agreement.

    Siemens Gamesa has now sold over 2 GW of this market leading onshore platform with one of the largest rotors at 170 meters in the industry, enabling it to provide an unrivaled Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE). Of that 2 GW, around half has come from various sites and customers in Sweden, showing the pioneering nature of the country and its enterprises in their adoption of renewable technology.

    Siemens Gamesa & CrossWind Hollandse Kust Noord Offshore Project

    Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and CrossWind have executed the contract to deliver the turbines for the 759 MW Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind park. It includes the supply of 69 SG 11.0-200 DD offshore wind turbines and a 15 year service and a maintenance agreement. Final conditions are planned to be met in the coming months, converting the contract into a firm order for Siemens Gamesa. The Notice to Proceed has been signed, following the issuance of the irrevocable permit from the Dutch authorities to CrossWind in December 2020.

    The Hollandse Kust Noord project is the third project of the Dutch national offshore wind roadmap based on subsidy-free tenders. As the first project for Siemens Gamesa with joint venture partner Shell, and the second offshore project with joint venture partner Eneco, the companies are keen to join forces and create a broader renewable-energy future. CrossWind’s parent companies Shell and Eneco have already taken the Final Investment Decision.

    CrossWind is a joint venture between Shell (79.9%) and Eneco (20.1%), specially created for this offshore wind project. Construction work on Hollandse Kust Noord is expected to commence in 2023 with turbine commissioning planned to be completed the same year. When operational, the offshore wind power plant will be able to generate renewable energy equal to the energy needs of 1 million Dutch households.

    The Netherlands is planning to build six offshore wind zones between 2015 and 2030 on the path to achieve carbon neutrality and combat climate change. Of these zones, Siemens Gamesa offshore wind turbines will be installed at all three awarded zones when construction is completed: exclusively at Hollandse Kust Zuid and Hollandse Kust Noord and co-installed at Borssele.

    Offshore wind has been determined to play a decisive role in the Dutch movement towards carbon neutrality and combatting climate change. Under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, the Dutch national government is aiming for a minimum of 55% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in 2030 compared to 1990. The Netherlands also wants to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions from the energy supply by 2050. Both an acceleration of deployment of offshore wind and a focus shift from “cost reduction” to “minimal CO2 design” change is needed to reach both 2030 and 2050 targets.

    The SG 11.0-200 DD offshore wind turbine provides a high degree of reliability in demanding offshore wind projects from its strong performance, swift time-to-market, and low risk. The machine features a 200-meter diameter rotor utilizing the 97-meter long Siemens Gamesa B97 Integral Blade. It furthermore provides an increase of 9% in Annual Energy Production compared to the SG 10.0-193 DD offshore wind turbine.

    DNV GL Certificate for Siemens Gamesa’s La Plana

    DNV GL has awarded the first Type Certificate of grid code compliance for Siemens Gamesa´s hybrid power plant “La Plana: Storage, wind and solar” near Zaragoza, Spain. The Type Certificate for control behaviour and other grid code requirements, based on tailored testing approach within existing specification, proves the potential to support grid stability and features specially developed tests for control functions that are not yet covered by international guidelines.

    The deployment of renewable energy is accelerating in electrical systems around the world to meet emission targets. However, renewable sources like solar and wind are intermittent – with generation levels dependent on conditions. By combining renewables with energy storage and optionally other generation technologies, hybrid power plants offer the potential to reduce the variability of supply. This makes hybrid plants an increasingly attractive option to continue the development of renewable energy.

    To demonstrate that such a hybrid power plant could supply electricity to the grid in a stable way, Siemens Gamesa contracted DNV GL to carry out grid code compliance certification on the entire plant without diesel gensets. The certification was carried out using a tailored approach that followed the procedure defined in the DNVGL-SE-0124 certification of grid code compliance service specification. As part of the approach, DNV GL developed new tests for hybrid-specific control functions that are not currently covered by international guidelines, including control functions like “base load”, “peak shaving” and “smoothing control”.

    The “La Plana” pilot plant was commissioned in 2015 to explore the potential of hybrid power. It combines 850 kW of wind power, 245 kWp of solar photovoltaic panels three optional diesel generators and two types of battery energy storage technologies with a novel hybrid plant controller (HPC) that manages the mix of generating technologies in real time. “La Plana” is one of Siemens Gamesa’s critical assets for its main validation and verification activities in Spain. The plant can work in Ongrid but also in Offgrid operation mode, and is also able to work in Offgrid zero-diesel operation mode with gensets turned off. Transitions between Ongrid and Offgrid are also possible thanks to the Weak Grids control mode. Currently the Virtual Power Plant (VPP) control mode is added to “La Plana”.

    Siemens Gamesa to Supply 30 Turbines to Elawan Energy in Spain

    Siemens Gamesa has signed one of its largest contracts in Spain in terms of capacity. It is a 150 MW agreement with Elawan Energy to supply 30 SG 5.0-145 model turbines, one of the company's most powerful onshore wind turbines, which is increasingly gaining ground in the country, and is especially suitable for sites with medium level winds. The wind complex, formed by three wind farms in the same area – Fuente Álamo, Frontones and Derramador, with 50 MW each - is located in central Spain, in the province of Albacete, and is scheduled to be commissioned in mid-2022. The contract with Elawan also includes a long-term service agreement for a period of 20 years.

    The 150 MW of clean energy that the complex will produce will provide electricity to more than 110,000 households, almost the entire province of Albacete. In addition, its size will help to avoid the emission of nearly 400,000 tonnes of CO2 a year, the equivalent to the emissions of more than 200,000 vehicles. To achieve this CO2 saving, just over six million trees would need to be planted.

    Siemens Gamesa currently has around 15 GW installed across Spain, representing 53% of the total installed capacity in the country, which, according to the latest available data from the Spanish Wind Energy Association (AEE), reached 27.5 GW in 2020. Wind power has become the technology with the largest installed capacity in the country for the first time.

    The company will also strengthen its position in Castilla La Mancha, a region where it has been present since 1999 and where it currently has 2,292 MW installed and connected to the grid, 59% of the total installed capacity in the region. To this capacity must be added the 150 MW signed with Elawan.

    The 30 nacelles will be assembled at Siemens Gamesa's plant in Ágreda (Soria), the gearboxes will be produced at the plants in Asteasu (Guipúzcoa), Lerma (Burgos) and the city of Burgos, and the electrical components will be produced at the factories in Reinosa (Cantabria), San Fernando de Henares (Madrid) and Benisanó (Valencia). Siemens Gamesa has nine plants in Spain employing 1,200 people, and 4,500 employees in total in the country.

    Cloud Based Power Monitoring at Port of Kiel’s Shore Power System

    The Port of Kiel commissioned Siemens Smart Infrastructure to implement a cloud-based power monitoring solution for its shore power system. The shore power system, also from Siemens, will cover the electricity demand of all ships at the Ostseekai and Schwedenkai with green power while they are berthed at the Port of Kiel. This saves more than 8,000 tons of CO2 per year. The new power monitoring solution makes it possible to measure the energy consumption in the shore power operations building and at the Ostseekai and Schwedenkai connecting points, and store the data in MindSphere, the cloud-based IoT system from Siemens. The operators have access to all relevant electrical values at any time and from anywhere, allowing them to determine consumption, identify faults, avoid downtimes, and plan maintenance routines better.

    All data is captured using 7KM PAC series measuring devices, bundled, and transferred to MindSphere via the Powercenter 3000 IoT data platform, and visualized either via the integrated web server or the Sentron “powermind” app. The app can be used intuitively and requires no specific IT knowledge.

    The Port of Kiel has ferry connections to Scandinavia and to the Baltic states and is the starting point for many cruises. In 2019, 32 different cruise ships called at the Port of Kiel a total of 174 times, bringing about 800,000 passengers to Kiel. The first shore power system was commissioned in May 2019 at Norwegenkai. The second facility, with connecting points at Ostseekai and Schwedenkai, was connected to the grid this year. It has a capacity of 16 megavolt amperes (MVA) and will be able to supply two ships in parallel for the first time.

    140 Siemens Gamesa Turbines for Wind Farm Hollandse Kust Zuid

    Vattenfall and Siemens Gamesa are working together on the development of the new 11 MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbines for offshore Wind Farm Hollandse Kust Zuid. Hollandse Kust Zuid will be the first offshore wind farm to install a new series of wind turbines: the Siemens Gamesa Direct Drive 11 MW. These 140 new turbines will be the biggest ever to be installed at scale. To ensure that they will soon be able to supply green energy for decades, Siemens Gamesa is performing intensive tests with a prototype installed onshore in Østerild, Denmark. We spoke with Kevin Metcalfe, Wind Turbine Package Manager at Vattenfall, and with Peter Esmann and Rasmus Holm, Senior Product Manager and Chief Engineer at Siemens Gamesa. They discussed the intensive cooperation between the two companies and the development of these new turbines.

    At the start of the collaboration between Vattenfall and Siemens Gamesa, the Siemens Gamesa Direct Drive 11 MW was selected as the turbine of choice for Hollandse Kust Zuid. At that time, each turbine was planned to feature a 193-meter rotor diameter. A few months ago, following an intensive thought process and lots of calculations, it was decided to upgrade to a rotor diameter of 200 meters. Kevin Metcalfe from Vattenfall explains why: “The larger blades result in a ~2,100 m2 increase in the swept area, which is about the size of eight tennis courts. This means the turbines generate even more green energy throughout their lifetime, even at lower wind speeds, which is important for a subsidy-free wind farm such as Hollandse Kust Zuid.”

    1,200 Direct Drive turbines at sea

    The biggest challenge that Siemens Gamesa sees for the coming year is scaling up the production process from a single prototype to serial production of one to two turbines per day. While the towers are almost the same for the 8 MW turbines and production can be scaled up quickly with familiar suppliers, the nacelle contains all kinds of new parts.

    Hoe voor schone energie bomen in de Amazone worden gekapt
    Jeroen Groot 16:16

    Voor de schone energie van windmolens worden in het Amazoneregenwoud bomen gekapt. De toenemende vraag naar windmolens veroorzaakt een run op balsahout in Ecuador, waarbij uniek natuurgebied wordt leeggeplukt.

    Boomstammen van balsahout worden getransporteerd over de Cayapas-rivier in de provincie Esmeraldas, Ecuador. Het balsahout steeg plotseling sterk in prijs, waardoor er een stormloop op de bomen ontstond. Foto: Manuel Pallares

    'Eind 2019 is het begonnen', zegt María Belén Páez. 'Plotseling doken er mensen uit het westen van Ecuador op in het Amazonegebied, op zoek naar balsahout. Deze handelaren boden de lokale, inheemse bevolking geld per gekapte boom. Eerst twee dollar, maar het hout werd steeds gewilder. De prijs ging uiteindelijk naar veertig dollar per boomstam', zegt Páez, directeur van de Fundación Pachamama (Moeder Aarde), een Ecuadoriaanse organisatie die zich inzet voor de belangen van de inheemse bevolking en natuur.

    $40 (€34) is veel geld in een gebied waar nauwelijks bronnen van inkomsten zijn. Er ontstond een ongekende stormloop op de balsabomen. Die zijn in het regenwoud vooral aan de oever van de rivier en op eilandjes te vinden, want daar is veel zonlicht. 'Er is nu zoveel gekapt dat er nauwelijks nog bomen over zijn', zegt Páez.

    Transitie naar duurzame energie
    De oorzaak van de plotselinge stormloop op balsa ligt, ironisch genoeg, in de wereldwijde transitie naar duurzame en schone energie. Om de uitstoot van CO2 en de opwarming van de aarde tegen te gaan, worden er wereldwijd steeds meer windturbines geplaatst. En de wieken van die windmolens zijn deels gemaakt van balsahout.

    Het hout is licht en sterk, en kan de belasting van de wind goed aan. Vanaf de buitenkant is het hout niet zichtbaar. Het bevindt zich aan de binnenkant, aan de buitenkant zijn alleen kunststoffen te zien. Het geheel vormt een composiet, een materiaal dat uit verschillende componenten is opgebouwd.

    Ecuador is met afstand de belangrijkste leverancier van balsahout ter wereld. Normaal gesproken is het meeste hout afkomstig van plantages. De bomen groeien snel en worden doorgaans na vijf tot zeven jaar al 'geoogst'. Dat is snel, maar niet snel genoeg om de heel snelle toename van de vraag op te vangen. Ruim een jaar geleden ontstonden er tekorten en schoten de prijzen omhoog.

    Voor de oorzaak van die plotselinge extra vraag wordt vooral naar China gewezen. In dat land werden vorig jaar in een recordtempo windmolenparken gebouwd. Dat had te maken met een subsidie, waarvan vorig jaar voor het laatst geprofiteerd kon worden. De subsidie bestaat nu dus niet meer, maar de wereldwijde omschakeling naar duurzame energie zal naar verwachting doorzetten en daarmee de vraag naar windturbines.

    Ondertussen breken ze zich in Ecuador het hoofd over hoe herhaling te voorkomen. De balsabomen groeien weliswaar relatief snel weer terug, maar de plotselinge run heeft wel degelijk schadelijke gevolgen. 'Inheemse gemeenschappen beschouwen hun leefomgeving normaal gesproken als collectief bezit', zegt Páez van Pachamama. 'Het strooien met geld voor de balsabomen leidt tot onderlinge conflicten. We weten bovendien niet wat de schade aan de natuur op de langere termijn zal zijn'.

    Páez is ook bang dat de run op Balsa een precedent schept. De plotselinge waardestijging van het hout trok mensen van buiten het gebied aan, die de Amazone als wingewest zien. Als de prijs van een andere tropische houtsoort plotseling stijgt, kan dat tot nieuwe bomenkap leiden.

    Vissen met dynamiet
    Ook Manuel Pallares van Fundación Raíz, een andere non-gouvernementele organisatie (ngo) die voor de belangen van de inheemse bewoners en natuur van Ecuador opkomt, maakt zich grote zorgen over de wanordelijke toestanden in de Amazone en in andere gebieden waar de balsabomen groeien. 'De mensen die van buiten het gebied komen om de bomen te kappen, jagen op apen om zichzelf te voeden, of vissen met dynamiet.'

    ‘De mensen die van buiten het gebied komen om de bomen te kappen, jagen op apen om zichzelf te voeden, of vissen met dynamiet’
    Manuel Pallares, Fundación Raíz
    Toch zien zowel Pallares als Páez niet alleen maar nadelen aan de run op balsahout. Bomen kappen in beschermd natuurgebied moet weliswaar te allen tijde worden voorkomen, maar het woongebied van de inheemsen in Ecuador beslaat niet alleen beschermd oerbos. Als er op een verantwoorde manier mee wordt omgegaan, kan het balsahout een welkome bron van inkomsten opleveren. Certificaten moeten er dan voor zorgen dat de kopers van het balsahout zeker weten dat het van verantwoorde bosbouw afkomstig is.

    Deel 2:

    Ecuadoriaanse houtindustrie
    Ook de branchevereniging voor de Ecuadoriaanse houtindustrie is op zoek naar oplossingen. De industrie heeft weliswaar tijdelijk geprofiteerd van de hoge prijzen, maar die zijn inmiddels weer ingezakt na het aflopen van de Chinese subsidie.

    De plotselinge toenames van de vraag zijn niet te plannen voor de plantages, en de illegale houtkap in de Amazone en in andere natuurgebieden is schadelijk voor het imago van de branche. 'Ik heb net een gesprek gehad met de Chinese ambassade. We willen proberen om vraag en aanbod beter op elkaar af te stemmen', zegt Christian Riofrío, directeur van de Asociación Ecuatoriana de Industriales de la Madera (Aima).

    Riofrío hoopt samen te kunnen werken met de Chinese autoriteiten om vraag en aanbod beter met elkaar in evenwicht te brengen. Ook wil zijn branchevereniging samenwerken met inheemse gemeenschappen om tot verantwoord bosbeheer te komen.

    Vestas en Siemens
    Ondertussen ligt de ongecontroleerde bomenkap bij de fabrikanten van windmolens uiterst gevoelig, zo blijkt als deze krant contact zoekt met een aantal grote spelers in deze markt. Antwoorden op vragen over het gebruikte balsahout in de wieken komen pas na lang en herhaaldelijk aandringen, en dan nog blijft het bij algemeenheden.

    Vestas uit Denemarken stelt dat er steeds minder balsahout wordt gebruikt in de wieken van de turbines, en dat het bedrijf erop vertrouwt dat de grondstoffenleverancier op een verantwoorde manier aan zijn hout komt. Siemens Gamesa, met het hoofdkantoor in Spanje, spreekt ook het vertrouwen uit in de leveranciers, die net als bij Vestas gecertificeerd zouden zijn via het Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-keurmerk.

    Maar zowel Vestas als Siemens willen niet vertellen wie hun leveranciers dan zijn. Ook het Chinese Goldwind geeft die namen niet prijs, maar verwijst naar het eigen duurzaamheidsbeleid en het onderzoek dat door de leveranciers van de wieken wordt gedaan naar alternatieve materialen.

    Bij Schweiter Technologies uit Zwitserland is financieel directeur Martin Klöti wat spraakzamer. Zijn bedrijf is de eigenaar van 3A Composites, dat de composieten levert voor de wieken van windturbines. 3A heeft eigen plantages in Ecuador en Klöti stelt dat het gebruikte hout alleen daar vandaan komt, en dus op een verantwoorde manier is geproduceerd. Tijdens het gesprek wordt duidelijk dat 3A aan Vestas levert, maar de namen van andere klanten wil Klöti niet noemen.

    Hij verwacht dat de vraag naar balsa nog wel even zal blijven, ondanks de toepassing van nieuwe kunststoffen. 'Kunststoffen worden steeds meer gebruikt, maar met de huidige stand van de technologie kunnen die het balsahout niet volledig vervangen', aldus Klöti.

    ‘Ecuador en de rest van de wereld moeten de gebeurtenissen van de afgelopen vijftien maanden als een waarschuwing zien’
    María Belén Páez, Fundación Pachamama
    En dat betekent dat Ecuador binnen afzienbare tijd het toneel kan worden van een nieuwe stormloop op het gewilde hout. 'Ecuador en de rest van de wereld moeten de gebeurtenissen van de afgelopen vijftien maanden als een waarschuwing zien', zegt Belén Páez van Pachamama. 'Dit probleem wordt heel moeilijk op te lossen als we er niet nu iets aan doen.'

    Siemens Gamesa Bags 5.X Platform Order in Sweden

    Siemens Gamesa has notched another two contracts totalling 86 MW in Sweden for its market leading Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform, building on a growing partnership with independent green energy supplier European Energy. The contracts will see Siemens Gamesa provide turbines at two different sites to be installed in 2022. At the site of Grevekulla near Eksjö six SG 5.8-170 turbines will be installed, and at the site of Skåramåla near Växjö a further eight of these turbines, with one of the largest rotors in the industry at 170 meters, will be erected. The turbines will have a flexible rating with most at these sites operating at 6.2 MW. The nacelles will sit on 115-meter towers at both sites, giving them a tip height of 200 meters.

    Siemens Gamesa has signed three contracts with European Energy in the country in under six months. Indeed, Sweden has recorded the fastest uptake of the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform providing one of the most competitive Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) in the sector, with over 1 GW of sales. Globally the platform has now registered around 2.5 GW of sales, with particular interest in the Nordics, but also in Brazil, the UK and Germany.

    Siemens Gamesa to Supply Turbines to Repsol for WindFarms in Spain

    Siemens Gamesa and Spanish energy giant Repsol have signed their first contract together that will see the installation of 24 SG 5.0-145 wind turbines across four wind farms in Spain, with a total installed capacity of 120 MW. This is the first contract between the pair as Repsol rolls out its ambitious growth plans in renewable energy. The agreement includes the supply of 20 turbines for two wind farms in the province of Zaragoza, in the North-East of Spain (part of Delta II project), for 100 MW, and the installation of four wind turbines in two other wind farms in the province of Valladolid to the North-West of the country (part of the PI project), with a capacity of 20 MW.

    The SG 5.0-145 is one of the most powerful onshore turbines in Spain, with just one supplying sufficient green energy to around 4,000 households. The wind farms are scheduled to be commissioned between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. The agreement includes the maintenance of the turbines for a period of five years.

    Repsol's Delta II project consists of 26 wind farms located in the provinces of Huesca, Zaragoza and Teruel. It will have a capacity of 860 MW, and will be developed between now and 2023. When operational it will supply electricity to 1.8 million people, over the entire population of the region of Aragon. In addition, it will prevent the emission of more than 2.6 million tonnes of CO2 per year. The wind farms in Valladolid correspond to the PI project, which will have a total installed capacity of 175 MW.

    Once these four parks are operational, they will be supply enough clean energy to power around 130,000 Spanish households and will prevent the emission of 430,000 tonnes of CO2, equivalent to that produced by around 150,000 vehicles. To avoid a similar amount of emissions, around seven million trees would have to be planted.

    The 24 nacelles will be assembled at Siemens Gamesa's plant in Ágreda (Soria), the gearboxes will be produced at the plants in Asteasu (Guipúzcoa), Lerma (Burgos) and the city of Burgos, and the electrical components will be produced at the factories in Reinosa (Cantabria), San Fernando de Henares (Madrid) and Benisanó (Valencia). Siemens Gamesa has nine plants in Spain employing 1,200 people, and 4,500 employees in total in the country.

    Siemens Gamesa Turbines for Sofia Offshore Wind Power Project

    Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has been awarded the firm order from RWE for the 1.4 GW Sofia offshore wind power project. Sofia represents a giant leap for the company; located 195 km off the UK’s north eastern coast on Dogger Bank in the North Sea, the project will be the first to install the company’s flagship 14 MW Direct Drive offshore wind turbine. At 593 square kilometres, the Sofia project will also cover an area greater than that of the Isle of Man and will utilise the evolutionary technology of the SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbine commercially for the first time anywhere in the world. The development brings other milestones; the 100 turbines will be installed furthest from shore of any project yet undertaken by the company and will feature the world’s largest single-cast turbine blade at 108 m long.

    The B108 blades being used at Sofia are more than six times longer than the first offshore wind turbine blades ever installed, namely the 16-meter long blades used at Vindeby in Denmark in 1991. The 35-meter water depth, the distance from the UK’s coastline and the sheer scale of the turbine and its components make the stable, proven technology of Siemens Gamesa’s Direct Drive technology, where no gearbox is involved,an obvious choice for the Sofia wind power project. The strong, reliable winds far from shore will enable the completed wind power project to power the equivalent of 1.2 million UK households. Offshore construction works for the Sofia project will start in 2023 with turbine installation set to commence in 2025.

    Two further preferred supplier agreements for wind power projects employing the SG 14-222 DD turbine are signed, totalling 2.94 GW: the 300 MW Hai Long offshore wind project in Taiwan and the 2.64 GW Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project in the USA. The enormous machines, with a capacity of up to 15 megawatts with Power Boost, a 222 m rotor diameter and overall height of 252 m, are able to bring utility-scale energy generation with far fewer turbines installed than was possible only a few years ago.

    The B108 blades take advantage of the IntegralBlade® technology, as well as the superior Siemens Gamesa PowerEdge™ solution and lightning protection system. Recently produced, the first three B108 blades will be installed on the SG 14-222 DD prototype in Østerild, Denmark later in calendar year 2021.

    ENGIE Selects Siemens Gamesa for Wind Farm in Peru

    Siemens Gamesa has been selected by ENGIE to together write a new chapter of the energy revolution tackling climate change in Latin America with the installation of 260 MW of clean energy for Peru at the Punta Lomitas project in the southern region of Ica. This is ENGIE Energia Peru’s first wind farm in the country. To date, the Andean nation has an installed capacity of 400 MW of wind power over 8 operating parks and aims to triple its clean power generation by 2030. For its part, Siemens Gamesa has 164 MW of installed capacity in Peru.

    Punta Lomitas will be equipped with 50 units of the SG 5.0-145 onshore turbine, and it is expected to be commissioned by the first quarter of 2023. The turbines will operate at between 5 MW to 5.2 MW. The order includes a long-term operation and maintenance contract, placing Siemens Gamesa in a privileged position servicing 5 of Peru’s wind farms.

    Globally ENGIE has a total of 10 GW wind power installed capacity, of which 20 percent has been carried out with Siemens Gamesa technology.

    Peru’s wind power history began in 1996 with pilot installations, with the first big projects developed in 2006. The Peruvian government has pledged to reach 15 percent of clean power generation by 2030.
