Siemens Gamesa has set a new record in Asia by installing the tallest wind turbines on the continent, the company claims.
The turbines, equipped with 153-meter towers and 56-meter blades, reach a total height of 210 meters.
The Sarahnlom wind farm, owned by Thai engineering company Gunkul and built by developer PowerChina ZhongNan, has a total capacity of 67.5 MW. It comprises 33 units of the G114-2.0 and G114-2.1 MW models.
Siemens Gamesa has already installed all 33 turbines for the project, located in the Nakhon Ratchasima province in central Thailand. Commissioning is scheduled for this year. The company will also be in charge of the plant’s operations and maintenance for the next 10 years.
In addition to Thailand, Siemens Gamesa’s Asian footprint includes Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, China and India; the company says it has installed more than 11,000 MW in these markets.
