Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa has secured its third contract in Sweden with leading global renewable energy developer Baywa r.e. for a 62 MW wind farm.

The contract was signed during the second quarter of the fiscal year, and will see the supply of 10 Siemens Gamesa 5.X turbines, with a flexible power rating to 6.2 MW.

These turbines will be installed at the Furuby wind farm, and will have a hub height of 135 meters, with a 220-meter tip height.

Further, the wind farm is expected to be installed in 2022 and will cover a 25-year service agreement with Siemens Gamesa. This is the third project in which the company has worked with a BayWa r.e. following its first project in the country in 2012.

Commenting on the project win, Clark MacFarlane, CEO for Northern Europe at Siemens Gamesa, said “we are continuing to see a great fit with the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform with Sweden and expect to see further growth in the country and region in coming months. We welcome the opportunity to extend our relationship with BayWa r.e. too, and will work closely with them to deliver a wind farm offering the most competitive energy solution.”

“BayWa r.e. is pleased to continue its successful relationship with Siemens Gamesa and our third project together in Sweden with the Furuby wind farm. Together, across the three projects, we will have delivered 103.3 MW of green renewable power for Sweden with the main part in the south, and I am sure there will be more to come,” said Håkan Wallin, Managing Director of BayWa r.e. Nordic AB.

Meanwhile, the company has now signed more than 1.2 GW of contracts in Sweden, and over 2.6 GW globally for its 5.X turbines, which included a huge 372 MW deal in Björnberget, the largest it has signed in the country for the 5.X.
