After close to ten years of absence from the Romanian market, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) is returning with the job to equip the country’s first subsidy-free wind park under a contract with project developer Eurowind Energy A/S.
The Danish company has placed an order with Siemens Gamesa for the supply of eight SG 6.6-170 turbines totalling 48 MW. The machines will be installed in the second half of 2024 as part of the Pecineaga wind project, located around 50 km from Constanta. The order includes a 20-year service agreement.
Siemens Gamesa has not registered any wind turbine supply orders in Romania since 2014 when the country’s subsidy scheme ended. On the other hand, this is its second project with Eurowind Energy this year after the Danish firm picked the same turbines for the Lervik project in Sweden.
According to Morten Gaarde, Head of Engineering, Procurement and Construction at Eurowind, the company has “a solid pipeline of coming projects under development in Romania.”
