February 12 (Renewables Now) - Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) on Tuesday unveiled a turbine order for 205 MW of machines that will become part of a 400-MW wind complex in Canada.

The order concerns the Forty Mile wind power project, which Canadian energy firm Suncor Energy Inc (TSE:SU) is developing in Alberta’s Forty Mile county. Under the deal, Siemens Gamesa will supply 45 units of its SG 4.5-145 turbines with flexible power rating and will also maintain the machines for 20 years following their commissioning in 2021.

The latest agreement takes the total capacity of Canadian projects being equipped with the SG 4.5-145 machines to 574 MW, the manufacturer said.

The entire capacity of the Forty Mile wind farm will be switched on in December 2022, the project website says. Its 89 turbines are expected to generate electricity for more than 100,000 local homes.
