Siemens Gamesa To Supply Wind Turbines For 118 Megawatt Turkey Wind Farms

Siemens Gamesa has been awarded a contract to provide 118 MW worth of wind turbines to the Baglar and Ardicli wind farms in Turkey. 

Siemens Gamesa has been awarded a contract to provide 118 MW worth of wind turbines to the Baglar and Ardicli wind farms in Turkey.

The newly-minted Siemens Gamesa announced this week what it describes as its “maiden order,” signed during the second quarter earlier this year. Now, this is mildly confusing because we have already reported that Siemens Gamesa has been awarded contracts for the supply of 112 megawatt (MW) of wind turbines to the EnBW Albatros offshore wind farm in the German North Sea in June, and the 752 MW worth of wind turbines for the Borssele 1 and 2 offshore wind farm set to be developed in the Netherlands. However, reading between the lines, it would appear as if the Turkey wind farm award was signed earlier but only announced later. Further, everything is relative, considering that the new Siemens Gamesa company is simply the merger of two experienced turbine companies, which together have already installed 550 MW worth of wind turbines in Turkey since 2010.

The new/old 118 MW wind turbine order will provide 36 wind turbines to the Baglar and Ardicli farms set to be developed in the Turkish region of Konya. This marked the first order of turbines from Siemens Gamesa’s 3.3 MW platform in Europe — a new wind turbine platform which is designed to minimize the cost of energy across a wide variety of wind farm sites.

More specifically, Siemens Gamesa will supply 20 of its G132-3.3 MW wind turbines, amounting to 66 MW, to the Baglar wind farm, and another 16, or 52 MW, to the Ardicli wind farm. Delivery for both projects are scheduled to begin in the second quarter of next year, while both wind farms are expected to be commissioned in 2019.

Siemens Gamesa will likely emerge over the next few quarters as a leading wind turbine manufacturer, unsurprisingly given that it is the result of a merger between two of the top companies in the industry, although, both were normally ranked in mid-top 10 positions. Nevertheless, given what we have already seen out of the newly-merged company so far this second quarter, it will be interesting to see how quickly it climbs the rungs of the top-10 ladder.
