Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy announced March 28 that it received new orders to supply five wind projects in eastern and northern Germany.
The company said the orders have been placed for 20 turbines with a total capacity of approximately 52.3 MW.
The Siemens AG subsidiary will expand the existing wind farm of the Kiel-based developer Getproject by supplying turbines, scheduled to begin operation this year.
Three Siemens turbines will add 9.6 MW to the Papenhagen wind farm in Börgerende, in north-east Germany. The developer WIND-Projekt also ordered an additional two turbines for its Hof Tatschow wind farm in the same region.
A 3.6-MW turbine is planned to reinforce the fleet of BMV Energie, in Mutzschen, Saxony. In the Bremen district of Hemelingen, a new wind farm with a capacity of 12.8 MW will consist of four turbines, to be built by the summer of 2018.
With a total capacity of 2,200 MW, Siemens Gamesa has approximately 1,700 onshore wind turbines operating in Germany.
