Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has secured an agreement for the supply of 300 MW worth of wind power turbines in China, one of its largest ever contracts in this market. This substantial order reinforces the company's presence in the world's biggest wind power market where it has established itself as one of the leading foreign OEMs.
Specifically, Siemens Gamesa has been engaged to supply and commission 150xG114-2.0 MW turbines for the Xilinhot complex and to service them under a long-term O&M agreement. The plan is for installation of the first turbines to begin in the second quarter of 2018 and for the complex, which is being built in Inner Mongolia, to be up and running by the end of next year.
“With this significant order, the company has achieved a new milestone in its strategy in China where it has already installed over 4.6 GW”, commented Álvaro Bilbao, CEO of Siemens Gamesa in Asia Pacific.
