November 7 (Renewables Now) - Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) said today it had signed an order to supply turbines for the 254-MW Stavro onshore wind project in northern Sweden.
The wind turbine manufacturer will supply 62 units with a 4.1-MW rating and deliver them to Stavro’s two sites. One of them, Blodrotberget, will be equipped with 40 turbines, while Blackfjallet will feature 22.
Siemens Gas and Power will take care of the grid connection.
The Stavro wind farm is planned to go live at the end of 2021 and will count on Siemens Gamesa for operation and maintenance (O&M) services for 30 years.
Once in operation, Stavro will supply electricity to Google LLC for a data centre and to Swedish forestry and paper company Holmen AB (STO:HOLM.B) under corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs).
The project was developed by German asset manager Prime Capital AG and is now owned by a consortium of Korean institutional investors, German pension fund Nordrheinische Aerzteversorgung and Siemens Financial Services, the turbine maker said.
