Siemens Gamesa announced new wind turbine orders for the supply of 289 MW to five different customers in Spain between April and June 2018.
Viesgo, Grupo Jorge, Comunidad General de Riegos del Alto Aragon and two important energy companies are the latest customers. Siemens Gamesa said all of these projects fall under the scope of the renewable capacity allocated in recent auctions.
Siemens Gamesa will install 92 turbines at 10 wind farms being developed in Guadalajara, Lugo, Malaga, Zaragoza, Huesca, La Coruna and Cadiz. Siemens Gamesa will start the delivery of the new turbines in October, depending on each project. The company will also operate and maintain all of these new facilities.
Siemens Gamesa will supply 58 units of SG 3.4-132, and 28 units of SG 2.6-114 and six units of SG 2.1-114.
The company will supply Grupo Jorge with 23 of its SG 3.4-132 turbines (82 MW) for the Coscojar II and El Aguila II wind farms in the Zaragoza towns of Pedrola and Plasencia de Jalon, which it will service for 10 years.
Elsewhere, it will provide Viesgo with seven of its SG 3.4-132 turbines (24 MW) for the El Marquesado wind farm located in Puerto Real (Cadiz), a facility it will operate and maintain for 15 years.
