Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy continues leading the way in India, one of the largest onshore markets in the world, with the introduction of its next generation wind turbine, the SG 3.4-145. The new wind turbine is specifically designed and optimized for wind conditions in the country, and has a clear objective to deliver the lowest possible Levelized Cost of Energy with high reliability. The turbine is strongly positioned to cater to the needs of the auction market and aims to further drive the growth of wind power in India.

The new wind turbine is an extension of the Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform, of which the company has installed more than 3GW globally, and will be manufactured in its facilities in India starting in early 2021. The new model has been upgraded with the 145-meter rotor of the Siemens Gamesa 4.X platform thanks to its modularity, increasing the swept area by 41% and the AEP by 48%, compared to the previous SG 2.2-122. This rotor is already under production in India and the combination of known and proven technologies has enabled Siemens Gamesa to drive the market into the 3MW segment, with the most competitive and reliable solution for projects in India.

The SG 3.4-145 stands 127.5 meter tall, with a blade-tip height of 200 meter, which helps it to maximize wind potential at every site. Furthermore, the turbine is designed to adapt to India’s extreme and varying weather conditions supported by an advanced monitoring and cooling system, which ensures efficient thermal conditioning and performance at high-temperature sites.

The prototype of the SG 3.4-145 wind turbine was commissioned successfully in the Alaiz wind farm, Spain. The 145-meter rotor diameter uses 71-meter long blades and can operate up to 3.6 MW with flexible rating strategy. The product has been designed to comply with the global IECRE Standards and meets the Indian CEA 2019 requirements.
