Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has announces that it has signed two agreements with a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources to repower 508MW in the USA at three wind farms in Texas.
Under the first agreement, the company will repower 362 units of Vestas’ V47 wind turbines at the Indian Mesa and Woodward wind farms in Texas. The V47 overhaul features a hardware and control upgrade resulting in an increased output of 710kW from 660kW and higher availability for 10 additional years beyond the original design life. The project is expected to be complete by year-end and the sites will remain operational during the installation by Siemens Gamesa.
Under the second agreement, the companies have agreed to repower 210 units of legacy Bonus 1.3MW turbines installed at the King Mountain wind farm in 2001. Siemens Gamesa will provide upgraded materials, warranty and commissioning services.
