Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy will supply 310 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 784 MW to five projects in the U.S. The contracts were signed between July and September of this year.
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 wind turbines will be installed at the various sites.
According to the company these five onshore wind projects will have the potential to provide clean power to nearly 240,000 U.S. homes.
“I’m very pleased that Siemens Gamesa was selected for these five major orders in the U.S. These orders demonstrate the confidence that our customers have in our combined product offerings,” says Ricardo Chocarro, CEO, Onshore, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.
The nacelles and hubs for the SWT-2.3-108 and SWT-2.625-120 will be assembled at the Hutchinson, Kansas, factory. The majority of the blades for the five projects will be manufactured in Fort Madison, Iowa, at the company’s blade facility.
