Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has secured an order in Thailand for 103 wind turbines with a total capacity of 260 MW, representing the company’s largest contract in the country to date.
Siemens Gamesa reached an agreement with a local developer for the supply of G126-2.5 MW turbines at the Hanuman wind complex, being built in the province of Chaiyaphum in northeast Thailand.
With a tower height of 153 meters and a blade length of 62 meters, each turbine will stretch 215 meters tall. This marks a new record for Siemens Gamesa, which last summer completed the installation of 33 210-meter turbines, the previous record holder for the company.
The turbines will be delivered in May 2018 and commissioned toward the end of the year. The company will also operate and maintain the facility. Siemens Gamesa notes it is already responsible for more than 50% of Thailand’s total installed wind capacity.
