Turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has secured a contract from local independent power producer (IPP) Xinjiang TBEA Group for 4.X platform in China.

Under the contract, SGRE will install 42 units of 4.8MW turbines for a 200MW project that will be developed by Xinjiang TBEA.

SGRE Asia Pacific (APAC) Onshore CEO Richard Paul Luijendijk said: “We’re delighted to see our first project landing in Xinjiang and strengthen our partnership with TBEA to support its expansion in the renewable energy sector.

“Following a previous Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform order with TBEA earlier this year, this new order reflects the customer’s trust in Siemens Gamesa products, technology and our capability of undertaking complex logistics and project execution.”

Additionally, the company has agreed to provide maintenance services for the turbines for five years.

Located in the city of Changji in the region of Xinjiang, the 200MW project is expected to be commissioned before the end of next year.

SGRE has been present in the Chinese market for more than three decades.

The company has also expanded its footprint to other Asia Pacific regions, including Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, with more than 7.9GW installations.

Last October, Danish offshore wind company Ørsted selected SGRE as the preferred supplier for the first 900MW Greater Changhua offshore Taiwanese wind farms.

The Greater Changhua Taiwanese wind farms are subject to certain conditions, which include the signing of a power purchase agreement (PPA), as well as Ørsted’s final investment decision.
