Siemens Gamesa has won turbine orders for two wind projects in Texas with a total installed capacity of 325MW.
The projects, being developed by an undisclosed client, comprise the supply of 65 SG 5.0-145 wind turbines and a multi-year service agreement.
Deliveries will begin in the summer of 2021 with both sites expected to be commissioned by end of that year.
The win takes Siemens Gamesa’s total installed capacity close to 6GW in Texas.
Siemens Gamesa onshore North America CEO Shannon Sturgil said: “An order of this size evidences the strong suitability and success of the SG 5.0-145 for the US market.
“We are proud to contribute enough low cost, clean energy for nearly 100,000 average US households to Texas, a leading state in wind energy.”
The SG 5.0-145 wind features a control system with “enhanced blade aerodynamics to optimise power generation”.
It has a flexible power rating that ranges between a 4.0 and 5.0, to provide a “tailored solution that fits specific site conditions”.
The manufacturer said its modular design allows for increased mechanical capacity and optimal adaptation to logistics and construction requirements, providing greater efficiency and a reduced levelised cost of energy (LCoE).
Siemens Gamesa has supplied 22GW in the US, across 34 states, providing enough energy for over 6.5 million average US homes.
