Siemens Gamesa has recently signed deals with WPD, Brial and a major energy company for the supply of 233 MW in Span.
Siemens Gamesa will install 70 of its wind turbines at eight wind farms in Spanish provinces of Zaragoza and Valladolid during the first half of next year. It will also operate and maintain all of these new facilities. Siemens Gamesa has 15 factories in Spain.
Most of the orders are for the SG 3.4-132, one of the company’s wind turbines. The company will also install the SG 2.1-114 and the SG 2.6-126 at some of these facilities.
The majority of the blades for these turbines will be made at the Aoiz factory in Navarre, the As Samozas factory in Galicia and the Moroccan facility in Tangier. The nacelles, meanwhile, will be manufactured at the Ágreda factory in Soria, a facility which has seen its production increase by 20 percent in the last year.
The company will supply 39 of its SG 3.4-132 turbines (135 MW) to power provider WPD at the El Poleo, Las Panaderas and Navillas wind farms in Valladolid. It will also service these facilities for 5 years.
Siemens Gamesa will supply Brial with another 20 turbines for the Tinajeros, Agon, La Nava and Los Cierzos wind farm developments in Zaragoza. Siemens Gamesa will supply a mix of the company’s SG 3.4-132, SG 2.1-114 and SG 2.6-126 models, represent capacity totalling 62 MW. The company will maintain and operate the wind farms for 10 years.
Siemens Gamesa has executed an agreement with an energy company for the delivery of 36 MW (11 turbines) at a development in Zaragoza.
Including these new orders, the company has announced contracts totalling 874 MW of capacity in Spain in recent months.
Siemens Gamesa is the number-one OEM, having installed nearly 55 percent of the country’s total installed base – supplying close to 12,500 turbines – in Spain.
In addition, the company services over 7,500 MW, which is roughly one-third of Spain’s installed fleet.
