Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) will supply 98 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines for an undisclosed wind-energy project in Kansas. The wind farm will span more than 40,000 acres of land and will be able to supply enough energy for nearly 73,000 average U.S. homes.
The blades for this project will come from SGRE’s blade-manufacturing facility in Fort Madison, Iowa. The nacelles and hubs will be assembled at the company’s nearby nacelle-and-hub-assembly facility in Hutchinson, Kansas. Deliveries for the project are expected to begin mid-2018, and completion of the project is slated for the end of 2018.
Siemens Gamesa has installed more than 5 GW of the SWT-2.3-108 wind turbine in the U.S. In total, the company has provided turbines with an output capacity of more than 18 GW in the U.S., enough energy to power more than five million average homes.
