Siemens Gamesa, a Spanish energy company, has been awarded a contract to supply 60 wind turbine units for the 882 MW Moray West offshore wind power project in Scotland. According to the agreement, the company will deliver its SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines, each having a capacity of 14.7MW. Each SG 14-222 DD turbine will have a 222 metre rotor diameter and use Siemens Gamesa’s 108 metre-long IntegralBlades. The Moray West project, located in Scotland’s Moray Firth inlet, is set to generate its first power in 2024. As per the company’s statement, the order also includes a service agreement.
Earlier this month, Siemens Gamesa received an order from Vena Energy, a Singapore-based company, to deliver wind turbines for a 133 MW wind project in Karnataka, India. As per the agreement, Siemens Gamesa would supply 37 of its 3.X platform turbines, known as SG 3.6-145, for the project. The turbines would be manufactured at Siemens Gamesa’s facilities in India, and installation work at the site is slated to begin in 2023.
