The platform introduces the largest unit capacity in the Siemens Gamesa onshore portfolio, 5.8 MW rated capacity, and the largest rotor diameters, 155 and 170 meters.
The SG 5.8-155 expands the swept area by 14% with respect to the SG 4.5-145, and Annual Energy Production (AEP) by over 20% (@ 8 m/s); the SG 5.8-170 provides an increase of over 37% in the swept area and more than 32% in AEP (@ 7 m/s) when compared with the SG 4.5-145. The first prototype installation of the SG 5.8-155 is planned for mid-2020, and production is scheduled to commence in Q4 2020. For the SG 5.8-170, the first prototype is planned for Q3 2020 and production will start in Q1 2021.
