Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has announced that the company will be supplying 310 wind turbines of different types for five projects in the USA. With various output ratings and rotor diameters, the projects feature Siemens and Gamesa technology of the recently merged company.
A total of 92 units of the SWT-2.3-108, 144 units of the SWT-2.625-120 and 74 units of the G126-2.625 MW WTGs will be installed across the various project sites.
The nacelles and hubs for the SWT-2.3-108 and SWT-2.625-120 units will be assembled at the SGRE factory in Hutchinson (Kansas) and the majority of the blades for the five projects will be manufactured at the company’s blade facility in Fort Madison (Iowa), with the rest being sourced within the North America manufacturing network.
The company has to date installed more than 9000 wind turbines (over 17 GW) in the USA and has a strong network of manufacturing, service and office facilities.
