Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has signed a contract to supply and commission 43 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines, with a flexible rating of up to 4.8 MW, for a Canadian project with an undisclosed customer.
The order represents a nominal capacity of 194 MW. The wind turbines’ 71-meter blades integrate aerodynamics and noise-reduction features – including SGRE’s DinoTails technology – to guarantee a high production of energy and reduced noise levels, the company says.
“We’re proud that our partners chose Siemens Gamesa and our SG 4.5-145 turbine for this project,” states David Hickey, head of SGRE’s business in Canada. “The new SG 4.5-145 turbine will provide extremely cost-competitive and clean energy to the consumers and communities of Canada.”
With more than 3 GW installed in Canada, SGRE notes it is the country’s market leader by cumulative installed capacity.
