Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) has been contracted to deliver equipment for a 75-MW wind project in South Korea, the turbine manufacturer said today.
The deal was placed by local real estate and renewables developer SK D&D Co Ltd (KRX:210980) for the Gunwi wind park. Dubbed the country’s third-largest wind farm, the plant is set to be commissioned in 2024.
To be installed in Gunwi-gun, Kyongsangbuk-do province, the wind park will be powered by 15 turbines of the SG 5.0-145 model. Once up and running, Gunwi is expected to generate enough electricity to cover the power consumption of 64,000 local homes.
This supply order also includes a 20-year service agreement under which Siemens Gamesa will provide operation and maintenance services.
Part of South Korean conglomerate SK Group, SK D&D has been working with Siemens Gamesa since 2014. As of now, the partnership resulted in two wind power projects totalling 84 MW, the turbine supplier noted.
