Siemens Gamesa to supply turbines to Forty Mile project
Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy will be supplying 45 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines to Suncor’s Forty Mile wind power project in southern Alberta.
“We are happy to strengthen our relationship with Suncor,” said David Hickey, head of the Siemens Gamesa business in Canada. “The SG 4.5-145 turbines provide extremely cost competitive and clean energy, bringing economic benefits to the local communities in Alberta.”
The order is for a nominal capacity of 205 MW and includes a maintenance agreement for 20 years, and is the third order with Suncor.
This agreement takes the total suite of projects for the 45 SG 4.5-145 wind turbine model in Canada to 574 MW.
When it goes operational in 2021, Suncor’s Forty Mile wind power project will provide green energy for more than 100,000 Alberta homes.
