Spanish-German wind turbines maker Siemens Gamesa has entered into a partnership with Swedish developer Eolus and Hydro REIN to supply the 260 MW Stor-Skälsjön project in central Sweden.

The contract has been signed with Eolus for over 450 MW as it works to stimulate an energy transition across the Nordics. Hydro REIN is co-owner of the project with a 49 per cent stake. 

The project, located in Timrå and Sundsvall municipalities, is expected to be installed by 2023 and will employ 42 SG 6.6-170 turbines providing a competitive Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) for the project.

These will sit on towers with heights of 115 meters to 123 meters. A 25-year full-scope service agreement was also included ensuring optimal performance over the lifetime of the turbines. 

The contract is yet another for the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform, which has now signed over 3.5GW in deals globally since its launch, with Sweden being the leading country to have welcomed this technology with over 1.5GW in sales. 

Commenting on the development, Clark MacFarlane, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s NEME region, said “Sweden has been a key country for the development of the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform and we still see great opportunities across the Nordics and more broadly to help our customers deliver the most competitive projects. We will work closely with long-standing partner Eolus to help them meet their needs at this latest project.”
