Siemens Gamesa has signed turbine contracts for two wind projects in Spain with a total output of 85 MW.
There is an agreement with Grupo Jorge for the delivery of seven SG 5.0-145 wind turbines for a wind farm in Herrera de los Navarros (Zaragoza) and the other with an unknown customer for the delivery of 10 turbines of the same model for another wind farm in the Zaragoza Province.
The Herrera de los Navarros wind farm is scheduled to go into operation in the second half of 2022 and includes maintenance of the turbines over a period of 15 years.
The other wind farm will go into operation in the first half of 2022 and includes maintenance of the wind turbines for 20 years.
The 17 nacelles of the two contracts will be assembled in the Siemens Gamesa plant in Agreda (Soria), the gearboxes will be produced in the plants in Asteasu (Guipuzcoa), Lerma (Burgos) and the city of Burgos.
The electrical components are produced in the plants in Reinosa (Cantabria), San Fernando de Henares (Madrid) and Benisano (Valencia).
Enrique Pedrosa, Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore CEO for Southern Europe, Africa and Latin America, said: “By signing these two new contracts, we are consolidating our leading position in Spain and showing our commitment to the development of renewable energies in the country.
“In fact, in this financial year (since October 2020) we have signed several contracts for the installation of 107 wind turbines with a total output of 534 MW in Spain and are convinced that this number will increase significantly by the end of the financial year.”
This new project will also boost the activities of Siemens Gamesa’s Spanish suppliers who are involved in the production of various components.
In 2020, Siemens Gamesa’s purchases from Spanish companies amounted to € 1.3 million, 4% more than in the previous year.
