January 19 (Renewables Now) - Finnish wind power producer Suomen Hyotytuuli Oy has ordered Siemens Gamesa turbines for a 81-MW wind project in Finland.

The turbine manufacturer said on Monday it will supply 14 of its SG 5.8-155 machines in an optimised mode with high towers of up to 240 metres (787.4 feet) to meet the site-specific requirements and improve the energy yield. A low-temperature package and an “operation with ice” application will be also added.

The Alajoki-Peuralinna wind farm is planned to go online next year.

To date, Siemens Gamesa has secured over 1.5 GW of orders for its 5.X platform turbines, including in Europe and Latin America. The deal with long-term customer Suomen Hyotytuuli marks the first take up of this technology in Finland, Siemens Gamesa said.

“The reception of the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform has been outstanding globally, but particularly in the Nordics, which are among the most pioneering countries when it comes to wind energy," noted Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s onshore business.
