In a company statement, SGRE noted that they will install 42 units with unit rating reaching 4.8MW, as well as provide operation and maintenance services for five years at a 200MW project developed by local independent power producer Xinjiang TBEA Group.*

This is the second order that SGRE has received from TBEA, strengthening the partnership between both companies.

The Siemens Gamesa 4.X platform, with its 145-metre rotor variant, is a good fit for the project site conditions featuring medium wind, sandy and dusty weather, and low temperatures during wintertime.

Commissioning is expected before the end of 2020.

“We’re delighted to see our first project landing in Xinjiang and strengthen our partnership with TBEA to support its expansion in the renewable energy sector,” stated Richard Paul Luijendijk, CEO of SGRE Onshore APAC.

He added: “Following a previous Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform order with TBEA earlier this year, this new order reflects the customer’s trust in Siemens Gamesa products, technology and our capability of undertaking complex logistics and project execution.”

*The order was signed in Q4 of fiscal year 2019.
