Spanish manufacturers of wind turbines and wind farms, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) have recently announced they will be supplying the Tonstad Wind Farm in Norway with 51 of their SWT-DD-142 Onshore wind turbines.

France-based ENGIE is developing the project that will result in a total capacity of 208 MW. The new wind farm is located in the municipalities of Flekkefjord and Sirdal in the South of Norway, once complete the wind farm will become one of the largest in Norway.

Installation of the wind farm is set to begin in 2019 and Siemens Gamesa has secured the long-term performance of the wind farm thanks to a full-service agreement.

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, CEO for Onshore for North Europe & Middle East, Steven Pryor said, “This project shows once more the strength of our global setup. Our experience in the Scandinavian market and our turbines with their compelling track record in the Nordic region ensure the best possible support and value creation for our customer.”

The wholly-owned subsidiary of the Norwegian aluminium producer Hydro, Hydro Energi will receive all the energy produced in the Tonstad wind park. The company has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) that will run for the next 25 years. With an annual production of 0.6 TWh, this equates to nearly 526,000 tons of CO2 emissions being saved. Hydro will use this clean energy to produce around 50,000 tons of aluminium each year at their Norwegian plants.

CEO for ENGIE Nordics, Sandra Roche said, “Siemens Gamesa is the ideal partner for ENGIE to support our market entry in Norway, based on its global setup and experience in the Scandinavian market together with proven technology and best in class service Siemens Gamesa is very well positioned in the growing Norwegian wind power market.”

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has been operating in Norway since 2002 and has installed more than 630 MW of capacity and more than 252 turbines.
