Siemens Gamesa has secured a new deal with leading renewables developer in Southeast Asia ACEN Corporation to supply 14 units of the SG 5.0-145 turbines in the Philippines following the country’s first round of renewable energy auctions. The awarded 70 MW Capa wind farm, located in Caparispisan, Ilocos Norte province, is expected to be completed and start operations by the first quarter of 2024. Siemens Gamesa also secured a contract to provide five years of operation and maintenance services for the wind project. The first 81 MW wind farm in Caparispisan by North Luzon Renewables was installed in 2014 and has operated as ACEN’s largest wind project in the Philippines. This project was also supplied by Siemens Gamesa. To date, Siemens Gamesa has installed 60% of the total wind power capacity in the country. The order follows the signing last year of the country’s largest wind project with the same customer for the 160 MW Pagudpud wind farm in Balaoi & Caunayan. This project came as the country’s wind industry emerged again in 2021 having been suspended for several years.
