Siemens Gamesa, will supply eight units of SG 5.8-170 wind turbines to Danish developer Eurowind Energy for a project in Sweden, the company said in a statement on Monday.
According to the statement, this will be the second project to feature the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform in Sweden.
In December, the company reached an agreement to supply 35 SG 5.8-155 to Arise AB and Foresight for the Skaftasen project.
'The landmark order will mark the debut of the onshore wind turbine with the largest rotor in the industry, capable of capturing more wind in medium and low wind sites,' the statement read
It said that the turbines will operate at a capacity of up to 6.2 MW, resulting in record high annual energy production (AEP).
As one of the largest consumers of electricity per capita in the world, Sweden has pioneered the adoption of new technologies to bring down both the cost of the electricity and CO2 emissions.
According to WindEurope, the country is expected to double its wind capacity from 7.4 GW to 14.9 GW by 2023 and the government has set a target of 100% renewable electricity production by 2040.
The wind turbines will be installed during the second half of 2021 in a forest.
