Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has agreed a contract to supply six SG 3.4-132 wind turbines with a flexible power rating of 3.65 MW to a wind farm project in Inner Mongolia, China, to be developed by the State Power Investment Corporate (SPIC) of China.

This is the first order SGRE received from SPIC and is also the first order for the company’s 3.X platform. Siemens Gamesa will be responsible for the operation & maintenance of the turbines for 5 years and will provide a warranty of 6-20 years for major components. Commissioning of the wind farm is expected in August 2019.
The project, located in Holingola, Tongliao city, is designed as a continuation of a circular economy demonstration project with generated electricity to be self-used by an electrolytic aluminium plant operated by SPIC. The project will also gather wind performance data for a planned 6 GW of wind approved for deployment in Inner Mongolia.
“We’re delighted to reach this milestone cooperation with SPIC, one of China’s top five power producers” said Richard Paul Luijendijk, CEO of SGRE Onshore APAC. “Based on our global scale and size, business diversification and technological leadership, SGRE is better positioned than before to support our customers to harness the power of wind in the world’s largest wind energy market here and beyond”.
