Siemens Gamesa has won its order in Russia from Enel, one of the independent power producers (IPP), for the supply of 90 MW of wind turbines.

This is the first wind turbine order for Siemens Gamesa in Russia. The wind turbine contract belongs to the preliminary agreement signed with Enel in 2017 for the supply of 291 MW at two wind farms in Russia.

Siemens Gamesa said the scope of the agreement includes delivery, installation and service for 26 turbines SG 3.4-132 at the Azovskaya wind farm, located in southern Russia, which is due to be commissioned in 2020.

Siemens Gamesa will locally procure and assemble part of the turbine components as part the localization requirements.

“This first contract comes in parallel with our ongoing activities for localization of nacelle assembly and local component sourcing,” Steven Pryor, Onshore CEO for North Europe and Middle East at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, said.
