Siemens Gamesa launches new wind turbine

Zamudio, Spain - Siemens Gamesa has added a new turbine to its 4.X platform, the SG 4.7-155.

The SG 4.7-155 has a nominal power rating of 4.7 MW and is equipped with OptimaFlex technology, enabling it to operate between 4 MW and 5 MW depending on site conditions.

The development of low wind turbines is especially important for already well-developed onshore wind markets where the space for higher wind sites is limited. By increasing the size of the rotors, wind turbines are therefore capable of providing a successful business case to produce higher clean energy production even with lower wind conditions.

“The new model will make us much more competitive in the low wind market segment, complementing our SG 5.8-170 to offer our customers broader options depending on their project characteristics and needs", said Siemens Gamesa Onshore CEO, Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.

A prototype of the new model is expected to be ready by mid-2021, with the start of production planned for the end of 2021.
