The new SG 8.0-167 DD offshore wind turbine variant for Asia-Pacific markets addresses local conditions across the region. Based on the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Direct Drive wind turbine platform, the variant is suited for the growing Taiwanese offshore wind market.
It ensures that the SG 8.0-167 DD is tailored to meet local codes and standards regarding typhoons, seismic activities, 60 Hertz operation, as well as operation in high and low ambient temperatures. The design will be ready in 2019, with installation possible by 2020 for Taiwan. The SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbine has a rated capacity of 8.0MW, and a rotor with a 167 meter diameter. It has a swept area of 21,900 m2, and utilizes the SGRE B81 blades, each measuring 81.4 meters.
