Siemens Gamesa inks supply deal for the Hilda wind project in Alberta


Siemens Gamesa, the biggest wind energy turbines provider, announced that it signed another deal with Renewable Energy Systems (RES) in Canada to supply the 100-megawatts Hilda wind project in Alberta.

Firstly, the deal further strengthens Siemens Gamesa’s relationship with RES in North America; helps Alberta and Canada as a whole to meet its goal of deploying 30% of renewable energy generation by 2030.

As a result of the deal, Siemens Gamesa will supply 20 of its trademark SG 5.0-145 turbines; those will produce clean energy for around 50,000 homes. The new devices from Siemens will use a 71-meter blade on the SG 4.X platform. The whole asset will integrate aerodynamics and noise reduction features to secure high energy production while reducing noise emissions.

Consequently, the devices will improve Hilda’s performance as now it will remain below the mandated emissions levels.

On the other hand, this deal will also expand the rapid deployment of these top-notch technology turbines in Canada by Siemens. In fact, the company currently has orders for more than 1.2 GW of power in western Canada; with the SG 4.X platform for installation through 2023.

Furthermore, wind turbines installations from Siemens Gamesa from Alberta to Quebec reach 3000MW. These contracts with RES will increase that to 4,000 MW by the end of 2023.

About the matter, Shannon Sturgil, CEO, Onshore North America, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, said. “In partnership with RES and through the Hilda wind power project, we are two global corporations truly working to generate positive impact within our local communities, and this project is proof of that.”

On the other hand, Peter Clibbon, RES Senior VP of Development commented. “We are pleased to announce Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy as the turbine supplier for our 100-MW Hilda wind project in Alberta.”

Finally, he commented. “Siemens Gamesa is a global leader in wind technology, and we look forward to delivering clean, renewable energy and helping Alberta meet its 30% renewable energy goal by 2030.”
