Siemens Gamesa has signed a new deal for its 5.X platform in Sweden, further consolidating these wind turbines as the leading technology in one of the largest and most sophisticated wind markets in the world. The company will deliver seven SG 5.8-170 and four SG 5.8-155 to wind power developer Eolus Vind AB in a highly customized solution. Both companies have worked closely together to optimize the configuration of the wind turbines, which will be delivered in different power ratings thanks to the OptimaFlex technology, as well as varying tower heights.
The wind turbines will be delivered to three different sites: Rosenskog (17,8 MW), Dållebo (26,4 MW) and Boarp (24,2 MW), all located in southern Sweden, close to the city of Jönköping. Installation is scheduled for 2023 and all three projects will be covered by a 15-year service agreement. Both in terms of installed capacity and rotor diameter these will be the largest wind turbines Eolus has used to date.
Since its debut order in the country back in December of 2019, the company has accumulated deals totaling over 431 MW for its Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform in Sweden. The Siemens Gamesa 5.X combines the best of the company’s engineering schools, producing a technologically superior wind turbine built on proven solutions to reduce risks. Once commissioned, the eleven units of the platform will generate enough clean electricity to meet the demand of over 56,000 European households and avoid CO2 equivalent to taking 113,000 diesel cars off the roads.
