Siemens Gamesa has signed four contracts with fast growing independent renewable energy company European Energy to install four wind farms in Sweden and Poland as both firms work to further develop a strong partnership. The Kingebol wind farm 37 MW in Sweden will see the installation of six SG 5.8-170 turbines from the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform. These turbines have been enhanced for this project to provide 6.2 MW of nominal power and are equipped with the largest rotors in the onshore segment at 170-meters. The site, close to the town of Amal, is due to be commissioned in the second half of 2022, and also includes a 20-year service agreement.
Meanwhile, Siemens Gamesa will also install a total of 19.4 MW over three sites in Poland, Drawsko, Siemsyl, and Bialogard, with 2 MW turbines for European Energy. The three sites are due to be commissioned in late 2021 and early 2022. The Polish market is expanding rapidly, and Siemens Gamesa has a pipeline of several projects as the country ramps up its efforts to increase renewable energy sources.
European Energy was founded in 2004 and since that time has installed over 1.5 GW of wind and solar energy farms. It sells green energy to large corporations and provides institutional investors with long-term investment opportunities in renewable assets.Siemens Gamesa first partnered with European Energy at a project in Denmark in 2013, and has since worked with the Denmark based group on projects in Italy and Germany, to which it now adds Poland and Sweden.
