  • The 7MW Siemens Gamesa 5.X onshore platform has reached a huge milestone, with the 100th wind turbine now installed at the 372 MW Björnberget wind farm near Ange, Sweden, for partners Prime Capital and Enlight. 

The first Siemens Gamesa 5.X prototypes were installed in Denmark and Spain at the beginning of 2021, and the platform is already delivering green and secure energy for our customers and their end users.

Designed and built at our facilities in Agreda, Spain, and Vagos, Portugal, the Siemens Gamesa 5.X is now installed in six projects in Sweden and Brazil, just one year after it was first introduced at the Skaftåsen wind farm in Sweden.

Indeed, the Siemens Gamesa 5.X wind turbine portfolio continues to evolve. This week the company launched a new variant called the SG 7.0-170, which will have a 7-MW rating helping customers to produce even more clean, green energy.

The Siemens Gamesa 5.X is the largest unit capacity in the onshore portfolio, with a rated capacity of up to 7-MW, and the largest rotor diameters, 155 and 170 meters, resulting in maximum performance in high, medium and low-wind conditions. The 170-meter rotor is among the largest in the onshore segment.
