The strength of the onshore powerhouse Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform has gathered momentum in Sweden heading into 2021 following the signing of a 62 MW deal to supply two adjacent sites in the Sunne region. The deal with local utility firmTekniska verken will cover the supply of 7 SG 5.8-170 turbines at Fryksdalshöjden and 3 of the same turbines at the closeby site of Norra Länsmansberget. These turbines will use a flexible power rating to adjust their nominal power to 6.2 MW, among the most competitive in the industry. They are expected to be installed by late 2022 and will have a 115-meter hub height. The deal also includes a up to 30-year service agreement.
Siemens Gamesa has now sold over 2 GW of this market leading onshore platform with one of the largest rotors at 170 meters in the industry, enabling it to provide an unrivaled Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE). Of that 2 GW, around half has come from various sites and customers in Sweden, showing the pioneering nature of the country and its enterprises in their adoption of renewable technology.
