Siemens Gamesa secures its largest-ever order in Thailand where it has been contracted to supply more than 100 turbines with total capacity of 260 MW

The turbines -the G126-2.5 MW- will be the highest in Asia, with a tip height of 215 metres

The company has already installed 310 MW in this market since its entry in 2011, which is a half of the total installed capacity

Siemens Gamesa has reached an agreement with local developer for the supply of 103 of its G126-2.5 MW turbines (260 MW) at the Hanuman wind complex, being built in the province of Chaiyaphum, in northeast Thailand.

This order also marks a new technical feat as it will entail the installation of Asia’s highest wind turbines: with a tower height of 153 metres and a blade length of 62 metres, the turbines will stretch 215 metres tall. This marks a new record for Siemens Gamesa, which last summer completed the installation of 33 210-metre tall turbines, the previous record holders.

“We are very proud to have secured this order which highlights our commercial strength and positions us as the leading OEM in Thailand”, said Álvaro Bilbao, Siemens Gamesa’s CEO in the Asia-Pacific region.

The turbines will be delivered in May 2018 and commissioned towards the end of that year. The company will also operate and maintain the facility.

This agreement marks the company’s fourth order in Thailand, where it has already installed 310 MW. In addition to Thailand, Siemens Gamesa’s Asian footprint extends to China, South Korea, the Philippines, India, Japan, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Vietnam, having installed nearly 6.5 GW in these markets.
