December 4 (Renewables Now) - Russian electric motors producer Ruselprom has received a contract to manufacture and supply Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) wind turbines on the Russian market.

The parties have signed an agreement that calls for Ruselprom to produce generators for the onshore wind turbine fleet of Siemens Gamesa in Russia, the Russian Association of Wind Power Industry confirmed on Monday. The pact has been sealed as part of Siemens Gamesa’s localisation programme in response to domestic content requirements for projects won in Russia’s renewable energy tenders.

Ruselprom already has experience in developing and producing various generators. It won the contract from Siemens Gamesa in an open tender process.

Siemens Gamesa received its first order in Russia, of 90 MW for the Azovskaya wind farm, at the start of October. It is part of a 2017 preliminary deal with Italy's Enel SpA (BIT:ENEL) for the supply of 291 MW at two wind farms in the country.
