Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has announced its first contract to supply its 4.X wind turbine platform in China. SGRE will install 42 units with unit rating reaching 4.8MW, as well as provide O&M services for five years at a 200MW project developed by local IPP Xinjiang TBEA Group .
This is the second order that SGRE has received from TBEA, strengthening the partnership between both companies. The 200MW wind farm is located in the city of Changji, in the region of Xinjiang, northwest China. SGRE said that the 4.X platform, with its 145m rotor variant, is a good fit for the project site conditions, which features medium wind, sandy and dusty weather, and low temperatures during the winter. Commissioning is expected before the end of 2020.
Richard Paul Luijendijk, CEO of SGRE Onshore APAC, said: “We’re delighted to see our first project landing in Xinjiang and strengthen our partnership with TBEA to support its expansion in the renewable energy sector. Following a previous Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform order with TBEA earlier this year, this new order reflects the customer’s trust in Siemens Gamesa products, technology, and our capability of undertaking complex logistics and project execution.”
