Siemens Gamesa Gets 75 MW Deal from South Korea
Siemens Gamesa has won a turbine order for a wind farm in South Korea that is being developed by SK D&D. The deal is for 75 megawatts (MW) of capacity.
Siemens Gamesa will supply 15 SG 5.0-145 turbines to Gunwi, the third-largest wind farm in South Korea. Gunwi is expected to become operational in 2024.
Located in Gunwi-gun, Kyongsangbuk-do, the wind farm's SG 5.0–145 turbines will "optimise" the mountainous region's wind resources.
To optimise the performance of the wind farm, Siemens Gamesa also inked a 20-year service contract to provide operation and maintenance services.
To fulfil its ESG commitments, SK D&D, a subsidiary of South Korea's largest conglomerate SK Group, has increased its involvement in the renewables industry, partnering with Siemens Gamesa since 2014 to create two wind power projects totalling 84MW.
More than 11GW of Siemens Gamesa onshore turbines have been deployed in China, Pakistan, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand.
