Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has signed a contract to supply and commission 43 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines, with flexible rating up to 4.8 MW, for a wind project in Canada with an undisclosed customer. The order is for a nominal capacity of 194 MW.
The SG 4.5-145 will be the most powerful turbine with the largest rotor size to date in Canada. The 71-meter blade integrates aerodynamics and noise reduction featuresà¢€”including Siemens Gamesa DinoTails Next Generation technologyà¢€”to guarantee a high production of energy and reduced noise emission levels.
“We’re proud that our partners chose Siemens Gamesa and our SG 4.5-145 turbine for this project,” said David Hickey, head of the Siemens Gamesa business in Canada.
“The new SG 4.5-145 turbine will provide extremely cost competitive and clean energy to the consumers and communities of Canada.”
He said that with more than 3000 MW installed in Canada, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy “is the market leader by cumulative installed capacity”.
“Our team of employees provide technical expertise, top-tier service, quality products, and ongoing support to all of our customers.”
Canada is eighth in the world for total onshore installed wind capacity with 12.8 GW as of December 2018, with a 20 per cent growth rate for the last ten years.
