Siemens Gamesa continues to push the boundaries of onshore wind power following the first order for industry leading 170-meter rotor wind turbine. The company will deliver eight units of the SG 5.8-170 to Danish developer and wind turbine operator Eurowind Energy A/S for the Knöstad project (46 MW) located near Karlstad, in Sweden.

The landmark order will mark the debut of the onshore wind turbine with the largest rotor in the industry, capable of capturing more wind in medium and low wind sites. Additionally, the turbines will operate at a capacity of up to 6.2 MW, resulting in record high annual energy production (AEP). Siemens Gamesa has also secured a 25-year full-service agreement.

This will be the second project to feature the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform in Sweden. In December, the company reached an agreement to supply 35 SG 5.8-155 to Arise AB and Foresight for the Skaftåsen project. In less than a year since its launch, the company has secured orders for the turbine’s two variants, which have rotors of 155 and 170 meters respectively.
