Siemens Gamesa to supply turbines for Cepsa's first wind farm

MADRID, January 16, 2018

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE), a leading turbine OEM in Spain, has secured a new order for the supply of the turbines for Cepsa's first wind farm, a project with which the Spanish energy player is diversifying its business into the renewables arena.

The wind farm, which is being developed in Jerez de la Frontera (Cadiz), will be equipped with 11 of the firm's G114-2.625 MW turbines for total capacity of close to 29 MW, said a statement.

Siemens Gamesa has also been engaged to operate and maintain the facility for five years, it said.

The wind farm is due to come on-stream towards the end of this year, it added.

Having installed 13,000 MW nationwide to date, Siemens Gamesa is Spain's number-one OEM, with a market share of over 55 per cent.

In addition, the company services more than 7,500 MW of turbines in Spain. Specifically, the company has installed close to 2 GW in Andalusia, which is almost 60 per cent of the region's installed base.

Spain is also home to the company's main R&D centre as well as one of its global production and supply hubs, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
