Siemens Gamesa, a German producer of wind turbines, has been contracted to provide OX2 with 11 of its SG 6.6-170 turbines for the Riberget wind project in Sweden. At the 70 MW wind project, which is situated in Sweden’s Ljusdal municipality, the onshore wind turbines will be installed. The SG 6.6-170 turbines will be installed at a hub height of 115 meter to harness the area’s best wind speeds.
In late 2024, the Riberget wind farm is anticipated to be operational. Once finished, the project will displace 185,000 tonnes of carbon emissions and provide electricity for over 60,000 homes in the area. It intends to give customers a levelised cost of energy and is said to have one of the largest rotors in the onshore wind sector. As part of a 35-year service agreement, Siemens Gamesa has also agreed to maintain the wind turbines. The contract for the Riberget project is the most recent advancement in the relationship between Siemens Gamesa and OX2, which began in 2010. More than 600 MW of wind power capacity has already been installed by the two companies.
In October 2022, Siemens Gamesa signed a turbine supply agreement as well as service and availability agreements with Taiwan’s Hai Long offshore wind project. The agreement incorporated three offshore wind projects with a total capacity of 1.04 GW. These included the 512 MW Hai Long 3 project as well as the 300 MW and 232 MW capacity Hai Long 2A and Hai Long 2B projects.
