December 30 (Renewables Now) - Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) will supply its wind turbines for the 260-MW Stor-Skalsjon project in central Sweden.
The turbine maker said today it secured the order from the project’s co-owners, Sweden’s Eolus Vind AB (STO:EOLU-B) and Norway-based power retailer Hydro REIN.
Siemens Gamesa will send 42 units of its SG 6.6-170 turbines to the project site, located in the municipalities of Timra and Sundvall. These machines, with towers measuring between 115 metres and 123 metres, are Siemens Gamesa’s most powerful onshore turbines, the manufacturer said.
The wind farm installation is scheduled for 2023. The agreement with the customers includes the provision of maintenance services for 25 years, Siemens Gamesa added.
Eolus Vind and Hydro REIN jointly bought the rights to Stor-Skalsjon from German turbine manufacturer Enercon GmbH this summer. Under their agreement, Eolus Vind took a 51% stake in the project.
In a separate statement today, Eolus Vind said that the partners had already agreed to divest the majority of the shares in the Stor-Skalsjon project, and that the sale process is ongoing.
