Siemens Gamesa wins wind turbine deal from SPIC China

Siemens Gamesa SG 3.4-132 model wind turbine

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has won a contract to supply six SG 3.4-132 wind turbines with a flexible power rating of 3.65 MW to a wind farm project in Inner Mongolia, China.

The State Power Investment Corporate (SPIC), top five power producers in China, is developing the wind power project in Holingola, Tongliao city. This is the first order Siemens Gamesa Renewable received from SPIC. Commissioning of the project — that involves Siemens Gamesa 3.X’s platform model — is expected in August 2019.

Siemens Gamesa said it will also be responsible for the operation & maintenance of the turbines for 5 years, and 6-20 years warranty for major components, said Richard Paul Luijendijk, CEO of SGRE Onshore APAC. Siemens Gamesa has installed close to 5.2 GW in China.

The wind energy project is designed as a continuation of a circular economy demonstration project with generated electricity to be self-used by an electrolytic aluminum plant of SPIC. The demonstration project maximizes the use of local resources, including wind, coal, water and heating, etc.
The latest wind project is expected to gather wind farm performance data for a planned 6 GW wind power base of SPIC that has been approved to establish in Inner Mongolia.
