Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has secured a second order in Russia from Enel Russia, one of the country's independent power producers (IPP), for the supply of wind turbines of 201 megawatts (MW) in capacity, SGRE announced in a statement late Tuesday.
According to the statement, the scope of the agreement includes supply, installation and commissioning of 57 Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform turbines at the Kola wind farm, located in the Murmansk region in Russia.
"The Kola wind farm is due to be commissioned in 2021. The contract includes full scope O&M (operation & maintenance) services during the first two years with an option to extend," SGRE said.
This order is part of the preliminary agreement signed with Enel in 2017 for the supply of 291 MW to two wind farms in Russia. Siemens Gamesa announced the first order in early October to supply 90 MW of capacity for the Azovskaya project.
With the delivery of its wind turbines, Siemens Gamesa will contribute to Russia’s targets to develop local renewable energy resources reaching 3.3 GW of wind installed capacity by 2024 and to ramp up a local wind energy industry.
