By Editor


Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy announced an order to supply 56 units of wind turbine for the 235 megawatt (MW) Overturingen wind park in central Sweden.

Siemens Gamesa will supply 56 units of the SWT-DD-130 wind turbine rated at 4.2 MW each, in addition to handling of installation and service, to Green Investment Group (GIG), a business of Macquarie Capital.

SCA in partnership with Siemens Gamesa is developing the Overturingen wind park.

The turbines with a tip height of 220 meters will be the tallest structures in the Nordic countries. They are more than 30 meters higher than the highest building in Scandinavia today.

Siemens Gamesa will complete the installation and commissioning of wind turbine at the site in Ange between the cities of Sundsvall and Ostersund in 2019.

Siemens Gamesa will be manufacturing of nacelles and blades at its production facilities in Denmark. Siemens Gamesa said it will source other essential construction work from local companies.

“Our technology perfectly meets the site- and project-specific requirements. At the same time, this project demonstrates the attractiveness of wind energy for the capital markets, investors and communities,” Ricardo Chocarro, CEO Onshore at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, said.

“Siemens Gamesa’s expertise in the Nordic region was valuable in bringing this project to financial close and builds on our global relationship with them, from Sweden to Texas and Taiwan,” Mark Dooley, global head of Green Energy for Macquarie Capital and the Green Investment Group, said.

Siemens Gamesa said it has an accumulated installed base of nearly 1.3 GW and more than 500 turbines in Sweden.
