Siemens Gamesa 5.X selected for Swedish wind farmSiemens Gamesa, Arise and Foresight Group will collaborate on another major wind-farm project in Sweden using the Siemens Gamesa 5.X onshore platform. The project will be acquired by Foresight Energy Infrastructure Partners, Foresight Group’s ‘flagship energy transition fund’.

The 277MW Kölvallen project, due to be installed in early 2025, will feature 41 units of the SG 6.6-170 model and one SG 6.6-155. The wind farm will stand close to the Skaftåsen project, which is being led by the three companies and currently being installed; this project was the first to use the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform.

The contract between the parties is also noteworthy for its lengthy 35-year service contract, assuring the machines operate to the best of their capacities over their lifetime. They will sit on towers that are 135m high for the SG 6.6-170 turbines, and on a 122.5m tower for the SG 6.6-155 version.

Clark MacFarlane, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s operations in Northern Europe and the Middle East, said: “This project feels like an extension to the Skaftåsen project, being physically close and allowing us to work alongside our partners Arise and Foresight to extend our collaboration further.

“This project is another strong endorsement for the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform. Between Skaftåsen and Kölvallen the two wind farms will provide significant green energy for Sweden.”

Per-Erik Eriksson CEO at project developer Arise, added: “We are happy to realise another great project with Foresight and Siemens Gamesa. The wind farm will produce almost 1TWh of renewable power per year, which is a material contribution to the Swedish power balance and an important measure to mitigate climate change.”
