Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has been awarded the firm order for the 112-MW Ishikari offshore wind power project in Japan from Green Power Investment. The project will be located approximately five kilometers from shore of the Ishikari Bay in Hokkaido, Japan. The order includes 14 SG 8.0-167 DD offshore wind turbines, each with a capacity of 8 megawatts and featuring a 167-meter rotor. Additionally, the order includes a 15-year full-scope service agreement. The installation of the Ishikari offshore wind power project is planned to begin in July 2023. The SG 8.0-167 DD is built specifically for offshore use. It is tailored to meet local codes and standards regarding typhoons, seismic activities, 50 Hertz operation, as well as operation in high and low ambient temperatures. The 167-meter diameter rotor has a swept area of 21,900 m2, and utilizes B81 blades, each measuring 81.4 meters. ClassNK certification of the wind turbine confirms that the SG 8.0-167 DD meets the stringent, technical standards required for the Ishikari project. Furthermore, the Ishikari project itself is the second commercial scale project to receive ClassNK certification. This is mandatory for the Japanese government to approve construction.
