Siemens Gamesa Reinforces its Leading Position in the Canadian Market

11 Feb 2020

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is reinforcing its leading position in the Canadian market with a contract to supply 45 SG 4.5-145 wind turbines, with flexible rating, to Suncor for the company's Forty Mile wind power project in southern Alberta. The order, signed in December 2019, is for a nominal capacity of 205 MW and includes a maintenance agreement for 20 years.

Since 2008, Siemens Gamesa has been providing cost-effective and clean energy to Canadians across Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. From its first 2.3 MW wind turbine to the newer SG 4.5-145 turbine, Siemens Gamesa's product portfolio has served the Canadian market with customized solutions for the unique wind conditions of each project. This agreement takes the total suite of projects for the 45 SG 4.5-145 wind turbine model in Canada to 574 MW, demonstrating its competitiveness and suitability for the market.

"We are happy to strengthen our relationship with Suncor," said David Hickey, head of the Siemens Gamesa business in Canada. "The SG 4.5-145 turbines provide extremely cost competitive and clean energy, bringing economic benefits to the local communities in Alberta." This is the third order with Suncor, reinforcing the partnership between the two companies.

Once operational in 2021, Suncor's Forty Mile wind power project will provide green energy for more than 100,000 Alberta homes. The turbine's 71-meter blade integrates aerodynamics and noise reduction features—including Siemens Gamesa DinoTails Next Generation technology—to guarantee a high production of energy and reduced noise emission levels.

With more than 3,000 MW installed in Canada, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is a market leader by cumulative installed capacity. Our team of employees provide technical expertise, top-tier service, quality products, and ongoing support to all of our customers.
