Siemens Gamesa has released an onshore wind turbine within the 5.X platform with a rated power of 7 MW. The new SG 7.0-170 turbine has evolved from the original SG 6.6-170 turbine and is particularly aimed at medium to high wind sites globally.
“This is a natural evolution of the species. The Siemens Gamesa 5.X has already offered our customers one of the most powerful machines providing green energy in the onshore landscape, and we can now boost its capacity even higher. This will provide real benefits for our partners, and we will work closely with them to guarantee we continue to deliver sustainable energy to the world with this benchmark turbine,” said Siemens Gamesa’s CEO Jochen Eickholt.
The first Siemens Gamesa 5.X turbine was installed in Sweden at the 231-MW Skaftåsen project. Since that first project, customers have placed orders for the wind turbine in many other countries including Brazil, Finland, Germany, Romania, and Spain.

Hi Siemens, great effort.
But Siemens must innovate, should not stick to the horizontal axis wind turbine forever. This type has very low efficiency, very difficult to design, manufacture, transport and install, the price is too expensive, the pillar foundation alone costs thousands of tons of steel, cement, sand and gravel, but it is calculated to inflate the capacity. dozens of times to advertise, trick unknowing consumers. Announced capacity of this MW, MW that, but in fact at wind speed of 12m/s only reach a limit of a few hundred KW. So why is it thriving? Because the world has not found a more efficient invention. I have a patent that is 10 times cheaper than the current horizontal axis wind turbine. But how to cooperate with Siemens?
