The first turbine of the SG 11.0-200 DD series of serial production came out of the Siemens Gamesa factory on January 14, as announced by the company, thus inaugurating the mass production of the new “technological achievement” of Siemens Gamesa.
It is recalled that the company’s plant – which is located in the city of Cuxhaven, Germany – proceeded with the appropriate modifications and upgrades as early as the summer in order to be able to support the production of the new shell (nacelle) for wind turbines.
It should be noted that the new Siemens Gamesa turbine is intended to be installed in the giant offshore wind farm of Vattenfall Hollandse Kust Zuid, with a total capacity of 1.5 GW in the Netherlands.
A total of 140 turbines produced at the Cuxhaven plant will be installed in the park, making it the largest in the world to date. In addition, it will be the first offshore park “subsidy-free”, i.e. without subsidies, in the world.
As stated in a relevant announcement of the company, compared to the previous model, the annual energy production of the new one increases by up to 40%.
