(PRESS RELEASE) Zamudio, Vizcaya, Spain, 26-Nov-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) unveiled its new Siemens Gamesa DD Flex concept and the SG 11.0-193 DD Flex offshore wind turbine at the WindEurope Offshore 2019 Conference & Exhibition. Built on the current largest offshore wind turbine in the SGRE fleet, the SG 11.0-193 DD Flex offshore wind turbine can reach 11 MW capacity under specific site conditions.
Andreas Nauen, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit, commented: “The SG 11.0-193 DD Flex is another example of how Siemens Gamesa constantly works to improve performance and provide greater value for our customers, ratepayers, and society-at-large. Digitalization allows us to increase the capacity of our current largest machine to 11 MW, boosting its annual energy production, while keeping the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) down. In turn our customers can deliver more clean, reliable energy to end-users at lower overall prices.”
Built on the current largest offshore wind turbine in the SGRE fleet, the SG 11.0-193 DD Flex offshore wind turbine features a 193-meter diameter rotor utilizing the 94-meter long Siemens Gamesa B94 Integral Blades. The capacity is increased up to 11 MW by constant digital observations processed by the control system. SGRE created the upgraded turbine based on its deep understanding and expertise within its proven offshore direct drive technology, gained over all five product generations since being launched in 2011.
SGRE’s offshore turbine number 1,000 will be installed soon using its patented Direct Drive technology. These turbines are installed in all major markets globally, including the UK, Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, and Taiwan, among others. Confirmed orders for an additional 1,000 SGRE Offshore Direct Drive turbines have also been received, with installations planned for new offshore markets including the USA, France, Japan and the markets mentioned above.
