SG is set to deliver its SG 5.8-155 wind turbine. The first in the world among the 35 units of SG 5.8-155 wind turbine, all of which will have flexible power rating operating at 6.6MW. The firm stated that it aims to install the wind turbines at the location during the Q2 of 2021 at the Skaftåsen project in Sweden.
Arise AB, project developer, and Foresight Group LLP, the infrastructure investment manager based in the United Kingdom, chose this most recent generation of onshore turbines, joining reliability with the greatest Annual Energy Production for the least levelised price of energy. The full-service agreement will last 30 years.
Daniel Johansson, the Chief Executive Officer at Arise, said: “We are very happy to introduce not only a significant new investor in the shape of leading independent infrastructure investment manager Foresight to the Swedish wind market but also cutting-edge new technology provided by Siemens Gamesa.
“This great project is founded on strong relationships and collaboration from start to finish, and we look forward to realizing this exciting project together with these renowned partners.”
Alfonso Faubel, Siemens Gamesa Onshore Business Unit chief executive officer, said: “Our vision has been to create the most competitive onshore product for any site condition and requirements.”
Siemens Gamesa 5.X goes one step ahead to establish itself as the new generation platform with the largest unitary power on the market and the biggest rotor diameters, 155 meters and 170 metres, resulting in maximum performance in high-medium and low-wind settings.
