Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) will supply three onshore wind farms in Norway including 70 units of its Onshore OptimaFlex wind turbines. The SWT-DD-130 turbines will each feature a rated capacity of 4.2MW and a 130 meter diameter rotor. All turbines will be installed on steel towers with 125 meter hub heights.
The project sites with 15, 18 and 37 units are located in the Bjerkreim and Ha municipalities, approximately 50 kilometers south-east of Stavanger. A 25-year full service agreement with a yield based availability warranty secures the long term performance of the wind farms.
Owner and long-term operator of the wind farm trio is Hamburg based Luxcara. The installation of the 76MW-Skinansfjellet project, the 63MW-Gravdal wind farm and the 155MW Eikeland-Steinsland project, collectively known as the Bjerkreim cluster, will start in spring 2019 with completion planned for autumn 2019. Siemens Gamesa is executing the projects in close collaboration with Luxcara and the Norwegian developer Norsk Vind Energi. A strong focus in this collaboration was on regional content and a minimized environmental impact during installation and operation.
