Siemens Gamesa secures orders for two US projects

TEXAS, April 25, 2019

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) was selected by EDF Renewables North America, a market leading independent power producer, to supply turbines for the Coyote and Oso Grande projects, located in the US.

The deals further confirm the commercial success of the SG 4.5-145 and feature a service and maintenance agreement for Siemens Gamesa’s premium maintenance programme, offering the best in scale and flexibility to maximise energy asset returns, said a statement.

Coyote, located in Scurry County, Texas, will feature 48 SG 4.5-145 and 11 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines. Project completion is expected for the summer of 2020, it said.

The Oso Grande wind project will also utilise 48 SG 4.5-145 and 13 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines, and is located in New Mexico, about 43 miles southeast of Roswell. The commissioning of the wind farm is scheduled for the last quarter of 2020.

The SG 4.5-145 offers a flexible power rating from 4.2 MW to 4.8 MW depending on site conditions and has a rotor diameter of 145 m, it added.

The 71-m blade integrates aerodynamics and noise reduction features—including Siemens Gamesa DinoTails Next Generation technology—to guarantee a high production of energy and reduced noise emission levels. This turbine model is optimised for medium wind onshore locations to maximise energy production.

José Antonio Miranda, chief executive officer of Onshore Americas at SGRE, said: “We are extremely proud to partner with EDF Renewables North America on these important orders for the SG 4.5-145 wind turbines in the US.”

“This new generation turbine offers best-in-class LCoE based on proven technology and evidences our commitment to continued innovation,” he added.

Art Del Rio, vice president, Wind Technology Strategy at EDF Renewables, said: “The evolution of our partnership with Siemens Gamesa to include this new technology is a significant milestone for both companies as it contributes to our long-standing efforts to reduce LCoE.”

“This new SG 4.5-145 turbine is the ideal fit for the Coyote and Oso Grande projects, helping EDF Renewables achieve the value necessary to build a competitive project,” he added.

In total, Siemens Gamesa has provided turbines with an output capacity of more than 19 GW in the US and has a strong US footprint consisting of manufacturing, service and offices, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
