Siemens Gamesa aims to have 10MW offshore turbine ready by 2022

ReNews:

Siemens Gamesa has taken the wraps off a new 10MW offshore wind turbine that offers up to 30% more annual energy production than its current 8MW offering.

The SG 10.0-193 comes with a 193-metre rotor and 94-metre blades.

Units will be market-ready in 2022 and a prototype is due to go up this year.

“The new SG 10.0-193 DD combines experiences and knowledge from five generations of proven direct drive technology in one 10MW turbine,” said chief executive Markus Tacke. “A showcase of strong performance, swift time-to-market, and low risk in the offshore wind energy market.”

“Siemens Gamesa has been applying its knowledge and experience directly into offshore wind turbines for decades,” added offshore chief executive Andreas Nauen. He added: “The Levelized Cost of Energy from offshore wind continues to decrease as industry scale and performance grow. New markets are developing across the globe, all of which require cost-efficient, reliable, and clean power for generations.”
