Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) reached a contract* to supply six SG 3.4-132 wind turbines with a flexible power rating of 3.65 MW to a wind-farm project in Inner Mongolia, China. The project is developed by the State Power Investment Corporate (SPIC) of China, and it is the first order SGRE received from SPIC.
The order also marks the first landing of Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform model in China, and commissioning is expected in August 2019. Siemens Gamesa also will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the turbines for five years, and six to 20 years warranty for major components.
The project in Holingola, Tongliao city, is designed as a continuation of a circular economy demonstration project with generated electricity to be self-used by an electrolytic aluminum plant of SPIC. The demonstration project maximizes the use of local resources, including wind, coal, water, and heating, etc.
The latest wind project is also expected to gather wind-farm performance data for a planned 6-GW wind-power base of SPIC that has been approved to establish in Inner Mongolia.
“We’re delighted to reach this milestone cooperation with SPIC, one of China’s top five power producers,” said Richard Paul Luijendijk, CEO of SGRE Onshore APAC. “Based on our global scale and size, business diversification, and technological leadership, SGRE is better positioned than before to support our customers to harness the power of wind in the world’s largest wind energy market here and beyond.”
SGRE’s history and presence in China dates back to 30 years ago, where the company has installed close to 5.2 GW.
*This order forms part of the order intake disclosed by the company in the Q1 FY2019 results.
