Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has inked an agreement with Siemens Gas Turbines Technologies LLC to assemble wind turbine nacelles in Russia, according to a Sept. 5 report from Windpower Monthly.
Starting August 2019, 4,000 square meters of a 12,700-square meter facility in St. Petersburg operated by Siemens Gas Turbines will be used for the assembly of wind turbine nacelles, hubs and drive trains, according to the report.
Siemens Gamesa will supply the turbines to Enel SpA's planned 201-MW wind facility in Murmansk and 90-MW wind project in Rostov. Enel secured 291 MW of capacity in Russia's June 2017 wind auction.
Siemens Gamesa and Siemens Gas Turbines are subsidiaries of Siemens AG.
