Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy made a big step forward in strengthening its product portfolio by signing the first contract featuring SG 4.5-145 wind turbines with Enel Green Power, the global renewable energy business line of Enel Group.
The scope of the contract includes the supply of 24 units of the new SG 4.5-145 wind turbines with a flexible power rating of 4.2 MW for Parque Amistad III and 36 units for Parque Amistad IV, located in Acuña City, in Coahuila, Mexico, for a combined total capacity of about 249 MW.
These projects represent the first order worldwide for the new generation of onshore wind turbines greater than 4 MW with best-in-class LCOE, and a tower height of 107.5 meters. The SG 4.5-145 offers a flexible power rating from 4.2 MW to 4.8 MW depending on site conditions and has a rotor diameter of 145 meters. It is optimized for medium wind onshore locations to maximize energy production with low noise emission levels.
Both Parque Amistad III (100 MW) and Parque Amistad IV (149 MW) were awarded to Enel Green Power during the Mexican Auction in 2017.
The scope for both projects includes a five-year service and maintenance contract after commissioning of the turbines, which will be manufactured in Spain and China (nacelles) and Mexico (blades and towers).
Across Mexico, Siemens Gamesa has provided more than 2.3 GW of output capacity for more than 25 project sites. The company has a strong footprint in Mexico consisting of third-party manufacturing, service and offices.
