Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has reached an agreement with Norvento, a Spanish renewable energy technology company, to supply 34.6 MW for a wind project located in the A Mariña district of Lugo, in Spain.

The company will deliver ten units of the SG 3.4-132 wind turbine, which has a unit capacity of 3.465 MW and a blade diameter of 132 metres. This model is particularly suited to the winds and terrain of the wind farm location in Lugo. Delivery of the turbines is expected to be completed by summer 2019.

The blades for this turbine will be produced at the Aoiz (Navarra) plant, while the nacelles will be produced at the plant in Ágreda (Soria).

“We are grateful for the confidence that Norvento has placed in our turbines. The cutting-edge technology in these wind generators assures the best performance and the highest standards of reliability,” says Enrique Pedrosa, CEO Onshore of Siemens Gamesa for Southern Europe and Africa.

Iván Nogueiras, Energy Manager at Norvento, says,”our commitment is to choose the best wind technology for installation in Galicia, while ensuring the utmost respect for the environment; the Siemens Gamesa wind generators play a key role in achieving that.”
