Siemens Gamesa To Supply Turbines To 281 Megawatt Nordlicht Onshore Wind Farm

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy announced last week that it had received an order to supply 281 megawatts worth of its recently upgraded OptimaFlex wind turbine to the Nordlicht wind project, made up of the Kvitfjell and Raudfjell wind farms in northern Norway.

The Nordlicht wind project is currently the largest onshore wind being developed this year, and one of Europe’s largest and most innovative developments. Announced last week, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy revealed that it had received an order to supply 67 of its recently upgraded OptimaFlex wind turbine type SWT-DD-130 to the project, located west of the city of Tromsø in northern Norway, and set up on two neighboring mountains. Specifically, Siemens Gamesa will supply and install 47 4.2 megawatt (MW) wind turbines on Kvitfjell (the White Mountain) and another 20 on Raudfjell (the Red Mountain).

Upon completion, the Nordlicht wind project will supply enough clean electricity to supply 50,000 Norwegian homes.

“We are proud to install the Nordlicht onshore wind power plant since Norway is an important wind market with excellent wind conditions and appropriate sites,” said Ricardo Chocarro, CEO Onshore at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.

“This project shows the strength of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy to provide an extended scope due to our close collaboration with Divisions of Siemens AG. In close collaboration with the customer we have achieved an optimized design and implemented innovations such as the OptimaFlex wind turbine technology and our long term service program to allow for an extended operation time. Both innovations help our customers maximize their business case and generate highly attractive and sustainable earnings.”

Siemens Gamesa will also provide long-term service and maintenance agreement for 20 years including 24/7 condition monitoring for the OptimaFlex wind turbines.
