Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has received an order for the supply and installation of 67 units of its recently upgraded OptimaFlex wind turbine type SWT-DD-130 for the onshore wind farm Nordlicht.
The project site is located west of the city of Tromsø in northern Norway on two neighboring mountains. On Kvitfjell 47 units will be installed, and another 20 units will be installed on Raudfjell. The turbines will be installed on steel towers at hub heights of 85 meters. All units will be equipped and optimised to support site-specific wind speeds and cold climate conditions with a rating of 4.2MW, de-icing technology and digital load control. A service and maintenance agreement was also signed, covering service and maintenance for an extended turbine lifetime.
