Siemens Gamesa strikes 81MW Finnish deal – reNews

Siemens Gamesa has struck an 81MW turbine deal with Suomen Hyotytuuli for a wind farm in Finland.

The deal is for 14 5.8-155 machines with 155-metre rotors for the Alajoki-Peuralinna site in central Finland.

Siemens Gamesa said the turbines will also be equipped with a low temperature package and ‘Operation with Ice’ application to allow them to perform in any condition.

Commissioning is planned for 2022.

Siemens Gamesa has worked with Suomen Hyotytuuli in both onshore and offshore projects in recent years and expects to continue growing this partnership going forward.

Siemens Gamesa onshore business chief executive Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said: “The reception of the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform has been outstanding globally, but particularly in the Nordics, which are among the most pioneering countries when it comes to wind energy.

“So, we are pleased to strengthen our collaboration with Suomen Hyotytuuli with this new deal and bring technology that can lead in the energy transition to Finland.”

Suomen Hyotytuuli managing director Toni Sulameri said: “Suomen Hyötytuuli has a 21 years long history of producing wind energy and Siemens Gamesa has been our partner from the beginning.

“Selecting Siemens Gamesa wind turbines was the best fit for the Alajoki-Peuralinna site, it is again one step forward to more cost-efficient wind energy production.”
