Siemens Gamesa to supply SG 5.8-170 turbines for Twin Peaks in Sweden

By Editor


Siemens Gamesa said it will supply 39 of its SG 5.8-170 turbines to two wind power sites totaling 242 MW in Sweden called the Twin Peaks.

This is the second contract with the Swedish developer Arise for the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform, Siemens Gamesa said.

The wind turbines will be split between 25 at the Ranasjo site and 14 at the Salsjo location, both around 15km apart in central Sweden. Siemens Gamesa said the turbines will have a capacity of 6.2 MW.

The wind power project will be commissioned by the first quarter of 2024 and will be covered by a service agreement of 30 years, Siemens Gamesa said.

The deal is financed by funds managed by London-based investment company InfraRed Capital Partners, namely The Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG) and InfraRed’s European Infrastructure Income Fund 4.

“We will supply the Twin Peaks project with turbines offering one the most competitive LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) out there, and will assure performance through the service contract over the turbines’ life,” said Clark MacFarlane, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s Northern European business.

In late 2019 Siemens Gamesa signed its first contract for the 5.X platform for the 231 MW Skaftaasen project also involving the Swedish developer Arise. Since then the company has now sold over 2.8 GW of the platform to customers from the Nordics to Brazil.
