Siemens Gamesa to Supply 194 MW Turbines For Canadian Wind Project

Once installed, the SG 4.5-145 will be the most powerful turbines with the largest rotor installed in the country.

Siemens Gamesa Wind Project

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has announced that it has signed a contract to supply and commission 43 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines, with flexible rating up to 4.8 MW, for a wind project in Canada with an undisclosed customer. The order is for a capacity of 194 MW.

The SG 4.5-145 will be the most powerful turbine with the largest rotor size to date in Canada. The 71-meter blade 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.

“We’re proud that our partners chose Siemens Gamesa and our SG 4.5-145 turbine for this project,” said David Hickey, head of the Siemens Gamesa business in Canada. “The new SG 4.5-145 turbine will provide extremely cost competitive and clean energy to the consumers and communities of Canada.”

With more than 3,000 MW installed in Canada, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is the market leader by cumulative installed capacity. Canada is 8th in the world for total onshore installed wind capacity with 12.8 GW as of December 2018, with a 20% annual growth rate for the last ten years.

Earlier this month, the company signed the agreement for the supply of 18 onshore turbines that will have a total capacity of 77 MW and an electricity production equivalent to the average annual consumption of approximately 65,000 households.

Before that, the company’s Indian manufacturing units started equipment export. Markus Tacke, Chief Executive Officer said that the company recently started using the India manufacturing facilities to export wind energy generation equipment, in addition to meeting the domestic demand.

In February, a $78.4 million agreement was signed with the Bosnian public electric utility company (EPBiH) to supply 15 wind turbines for a future wind farm. The total installed capacity of the wind power plant after completion will be 48 MW.
