MidAmerican Energy Company has selected Siemens Gamesa wind turbines for the Southern Hills Expansion wind farm. The Iowa project will feature 21 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines, operating at 4.8 MW.
This turbine model, a benchmark solution for sites with medium winds, has been designed to offer a flexible rating ranging from 4.2 to 4.8 MW, increasing its adaptability to be configured for optimal performance in each individual project.
“We are once again proud to have been awarded a project by MidAmerican Energy Company, strengthening our long-standing relationship with them,” stated José Antonio Miranda, CEO of Onshore Americas at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. “We have had great success with the SG 4.5-145 wind turbine, with over 1.4 GW sold in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, and are excited to continue growing that number.”
Southern Hills will also feature Siemens Gamesa’s premier service and maintenance agreement for three-and-a-half years.
In Iowa, Siemens Gamesa has installed nearly 1,400 wind turbines for a total of almost 3.5 GW. Of that, 1,164 units for a total capacity of nearly 3 GW are with MidAmerican Energy Company, highlighting the strong collaboration of both companies.
