Siemens Gamesa has won an order from Eurowind Energy for Thorup-Sletten, the largest onshore windfarm in Denmark.

Siemens Gamesa will supply 18 onshore turbines with a total capacity of 77 MW.

Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy, said Siemens Gamesa turbines can deliver high product quality at highly competitive price. “The upgrade of the turbine from 3.6 to 4.3 MW together with the 130 meters rotor was important to get the lowest cost per KWh produced.”

Siemens Gamesa will start the installation of the Thorup-Sletten wind farm, west of the Aggersund bridge in northwestern Jutland, in October.

Siemens Gamesa will also be responsible for service and maintenance of the wind farm for 20 years through a long-term service program tailored for Eurowind, Steven Pryor, Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore Business Unit CEO for North Europe and Middle East, said.
