Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has signed a contract to supply 43 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines (with flexible ratings up
to 4.8MW) for a wind power project in Canada. The order is for a nominal capacity of 194 MW.
The SG 4.5-145’s 71m blade integrates aerodynamics and noise reduction features —including Siemens Gamesa DinoTails next-generation technology — to guarantee a high output of energy and reduced noise levels.
David Hickey, head of the Siemens Gamesa business in Canada, said: “We are proud that our SG 4.5-145 turbine
was chosen for this project.
“It will provide extremely cost-competitive and clean energy to the consumers and communities of Canada.”
With more than 3,000MW installed in Canada, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is the market leader by cumulative installed capacity.
Canada is eighth in the world for total onshore installed wind capacity, with 12.8GW as of December 2018 and a 20% annual growth rate for the last 10 years.
