Typhoon proof onshore turbines designed for Japan
Siemens Gamesa will supply 79 of its industry-leading Typhoon-class onshore wind turbines for Japan’s largest wind farm cluster, strengthening its position as one of the leading renewable energy players in the country. The 339.7 MW* Dohoku wind farm cluster consists of four projects to be developed by Eurus Energy, the country’s leading independent renewable energy developer.
Siemens Gamesa will also provide technical field assistance for construction and commissioning of the four wind projects, with expected full commissioning in the second half of 2023. Given that Japan faces very high wind speeds, including typhoons, Siemens Gamesa specifically designed the typhoon-proof onshore turbines based on proven technologies to accommodate the local wind site conditions.
“We’re the first company in the industry that has developed 4.3 MW typhoon type certified onshore turbines, which also achieved site-specific Wind Farm Certificate for several Japanese projects too. Equipped with the strongest T-class turbine in the market, we are very pleased to supply this milestone giant project to capture the abundant high winds in Japan and extend our partnership with Eurus Energy over the last more than 20 years with projects both inside and outside of Japan,” said Russell Cato, Managing Director of Siemens Gamesa in Japan.
Operating in Japan for more than 20 years with track record of excellence, Siemens Gamesa has developed a full-fledged local set up to build and operate wind farms, which includes 520 MW installed capacity and 353 MW under maintenance and operation.
