    Siemens Gamesa closes its first offshore wind order in Japan

    July 29, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Siemens Gamesa closes its first offshore wind order in Japan. It will supply 112 MW to the energy company Green Power Investment for the Ishikari offshore wind farm.

      The facility - located about five kilometers off the coast of Ishikari Bay on the island of Hokkaido - will have 14 SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbines, each with a capacity of 8 MW and a 167-meter rotor, and installation will begin in July 2023. Gamesa will also be responsible for their maintenance for the next 15 years.

      These wind turbine models are adapted to Japan's local requirements regarding typhoons, seismic activity, temperature and operation at 50 Hertz. In fact, this is the first offshore wind turbine on the market to receive ClassNK certification, a prerequisite for the Japanese government to approve its construction.

      "This project marks a milestone for Siemens Gamesa in Japan and also represents a unique opportunity to increase the share of renewable energy in the country's energy mix. Thanks to our strong presence in the onshore segment, with almost 1 GW already installed or under maintenance in Japan, and the trust that Green Power Investment has placed in Siemens Gamesa, I am confident that the project will be a success," said Marc Becker, CEO of Siemens Gamesa's Offshore division.

      Gamesa in Japan

      Siemens Gamesa has been operating in Japan since the turn of the century, 1999. Since then, the company has accumulated nearly 600 MW of installed capacity and 340 MW in operation and maintenance.

      With the signing of the project announced today, Japan becomes the second country in Asia with firm orders in offshore wind energy for Siemens Gamesa. The company already has more than 3 GW of orders in Taiwan, where it installed its first offshore wind farm in 2019.
