November 30 (Renewables Now) - Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) today unveiled orders to supply 263 MW of turbines for onshore wind projects in Sweden, Norway, Germany and Turkey.

More specifically, Swedish wind farm developer Arise Windpower AB has ordered 20 turbines with a combined capacity of 82 MW for the Broecklingberget and Enviksberget wind parks in Sweden, planned to be commissioned next autumn. Siemens Gamesa will operate and maintain the two plants for a 20-year term. 

In Norway, Siemens Gamesa will equip developer Eolus Vind AB (STO:EOLU-B)’s 30-MW Stigafjellet wind park with seven turbines and will service the machines for five years. The wind farm will be brought online in 2020.

Separately, Siemens Gamesa will deliver seven turbines of over 25 MW in total for the Mautitz Sued wind park in Germany, owned by Germany’s Saxovent Oekologische Investments GmbH & Co KG. It will also deliver operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the plant, slated for commissioning next month, for 20 years.

Under the Turkish order, Siemens Gamesa will supply 37 turbines totalling over 125 MW to Afken Renewable Energy AS. The machines will be installed at two wind parks, scheduled to be switched in 2019. A 15-year O&M agreement is part of the deal, as well.

All turbines under the contracts have capacities ranging from 2.3 MW to 4.1 MW, Siemens Gamesa said.
