The deal strengthens the company’s global partnership with RES in North America while taking a step forward to help Alberta, and Canada as a whole, meet their 30 percent goal of renewable energy generation by 2030. Siemens Gamesa will supply 20 SG 5.0-145 turbines, providing clean affordable power for around 50,000 homes.

“In partnership with RES and through the Hilda wind power project, we are two global corporations truly working to generate positive impact within our local communities and this project is proof of that” said Shannon Sturgil, CEO, Onshore North America, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. “RES continues to be a key partner in providing clean energy solutions, as well as a strong global citizen in the communities we serve, and we are proud to expand our partnership with them into Canada.”

The 71-metre blade on the SG 4.X platform integrates aerodynamics and noise reduction features - including Siemens Gamesa DinoTails Next Generation technology - to guarantee a high production of energy and reduced noise emission levels. This reduction in noise will improve the performance at the Hilda wind power project while remaining within the mandated noise emission levels. Siemens Gamesa currently has orders for more than 1.2 GW of power in western Canada with the SG 4.X platform for installation through 2023.

With wind turbine installations of almost 3,000 MW installed across Canada from Alberta to Quebec, and with signed contracts that will increase to more than 4,000 MW by the end of 2023, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is a market leader by cumulative installed capacity.
