Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has signed a contract to supply and commission 43 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines, with a flexible rating of up to 4.8 megawatts (MW), for a Canadian wind project with an undisclosed customer, according to the company's statement on Friday.
"The order is for a nominal capacity of 194 MW," the statement said.
The SG 4.5-145 will be the most powerful turbine with the largest rotor size to date in Canada.
The 71-meter blade integrates aerodynamics and noise reduction features—including Siemens Gamesa DinoTails® Next Generation technology—to guarantee a high production of energy and reduced noise emission levels.
With more than 3,000 MW installed in Canada, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is the market leader based on cumulative installed capacity.
