Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has secured its largest-ever order in Thailand, a 260 megawatt order of 100 wind turbines for the Hanuman wind complex in Chaiyaphum, in northeast Thailand.

On Monday, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy revealed that it had received a new milestone order in Asia with its largest-ever contract in Thailand — an order for 103 of its G126-2.5 MW (megawatt) turbines for the 260 MW Hanuman wind complex in the province of Chaiyaphum, in northeast Thailand.

It is expected that the turbines will be delivered in May of next year and commissioned by the end of the year.

Not only is the order a capacity record in Thailand, but it also marks a new technical feat as Siemens Gamesa will install Asia’s tallest wind turbines — 153 meters in height with a blade length of 62 meters, meaning that at their peak they will reach 215 meters high.

“We are very proud to have secured this order which highlights our commercial strength and positions us as the leading OEM in Thailand,” said Álvaro Bilbao, Siemens Gamesa’s CEO in the Asia-Pacific region, adding that “it also endorses the versatility of our wind turbines and the company’s R&D capabilities.”

This is Siemens Gamesa’s fourth order in Thailand, a country where it has already installed a total of 310 MW.
