Siemens Gamesa has been contracted as a preferred supplier for seven projected onshore wind power plants to be tendered over the next two years with a total rating of approximately 110MW.
The Wiesbaden-based company is planning to use up to 31 units from the turbine supplier for its planned projects in Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Thuringia and Brandenburg. Geared and direct-drive turbines such as Siemens Gamesa models SWT-DD-142 and G132 are planned to be deployed at the sites. ABO Wind aims to execute these projects by 2020 and is counting on the benefit of a flexible rating within the 3.5 to 4.3MW range. In addition a variety of tower configurations with hub heights of up to 165 meters will help to achieve optimized energy yields under the specific conditions of inland sites.
