Siemens Gamesa will also provide technical field assistance for construction and commissioning of the four wind projects, with expected full commissioning in the second half of 2023. Given that Japan faces very high wind speeds, including typhoons, Siemens Gamesa specifically designed the typhoon-proof onshore turbines based on proven technologies to accommodate the local wind site conditions.
Operating in Japan for more than 20 years with track record of excellence, Siemens Gamesa has developed a full-fledged local set up to build and operate wind farms, which includes 520 MW installed capacity and 353 MW under maintenance and operation.
“We’re the first company in the industry that has developed 4.3 MW typhoon type certified onshore turbines, which also achieved site-specific Wind Farm Certificate for several Japanese projects too” said Russell Cato, Managing Director of Siemens Gamesa in Japan. “Equipped with the strongest T-class turbine in the market, we are very pleased to supply this milestone giant project to capture the abundant high winds in Japan and extend our partnership with Eurus Energy over the last more than 20 years with projects both inside and outside of Japan.”
Paulo Soares, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore business unit in the Asia Pacific region, added that with deep roots in Asia Pacific, Siemens Gamesa has developed a world-class manufacturing and supplier base in the region, as well as a capable and growing team on the ground for project execution and maintenance.
“Leveraging our strength on technology innovation, we are well positioned to join hands with trusted partners to develop renewable energy for the sustainable growth of our society and community” Mr Soares said.
Siemens Gamesa has been expanding in Asia Pacific since the 1980s and has installed more than 9.41 GW of onshore turbines in China, Pakistan, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. On the offshore side, the company completed the installation of Taiwan’s first offshore wind power plant in 2019 (128 MW) and was selected as the preferred supplier for an additional 3 GW of projects.
