Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has won contracts to supply over 300 wind turbines worth 780 MW. The company will supply a total of 310 wind turbines of different types to five separate wind energy projects across the US, whose contracts were signed during the third quarter of 2017. In total, Siemens Gamesa will supply 92 units of its SWT-2.3-108 wind turbine, 144 units of the SWT-2.625-120 wind turbine, and 74 units of the G126-2.625 MW turbine. Majority of the manufacturing for the projects will be kept within the US, with the nacelles and hubs for SWT-2.3-108 and SWT-2.625-120 to be assembled at the SGRE factory in Hutchinson, Kansas, and the majority of the blades for the five projects to be manufactured at the company’s blade facility in Ford Madison, Iowa – with the excess being sourced through the company’s North America manufacturing network.
