Highway between Oslo and Gothenburg to get new landmarks along the way: the powerful Siemens Gamesa 5.X
- Contract to supply 10 SG 5.8-155 turbines to Swedish Independent Power Producer Rabbalshede Kraft
- The deal between the two companies also includes a 25-year service agreement for the closely located sites at Femstenaberg and Lursäng sites near Strömstad
- Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform continues to break ground in Sweden and globally onshore
Siemens Gamesa has signed a 66 MW deal to supply Swedish wind energy supplier Rabbalshede Kraft with its Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform, as the take up for this market-leading turbine gathers strength in the Nordic region.
The contract is the first with Rabbalshede Kraft in 11 years, with a renewed collaboration now to supply one of the most competitive platforms in the onshore segment offering customers a low Levelized Cost of Energy. The deal will also cover a 25-year service agreement.
The contract will see Siemens Gamesa install seven turbines at the Femstenaberg site, which will form landmarks along the E6 highway linking Gothenburg with Oslo. Three other turbines will be installed around 5-6 kilometers away at the Lursäng site. Installation is due to begin in the summer of 2022.
“Sweden has been fast to embrace the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform, offering one of the most powerful turbines on the market. We are also delighted to reignite our long relationship with Rabbalshede Kraft, and aim to provide more solutions and technology to them and to the Nordics as an energy transition gains traction there,” said Clark MacFarlane, Onshore CEO for Northern Europe at Siemens Gamesa.
