Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform upgrade to 7-MW
  • The Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform is one of the most competitive in the onshore landscape and can now offer up to 7-MW rated power. 
  • The platform has reached over 4.5GW in sales globally since its launch. 

The new SG 7.0-170 turbine will offer one of the most competitive Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) in the industry, enabling customers to provide more clean power. The variant has evolved from the original SG 6.6-170 turbine and is particularly aimed at medium to high wind sites globally. 

The powerful Siemens Gamesa 5.X wind turbine has attracted strong interest from customers since its launch with sales of around 4.5GW to date from Brazil to Finland.  

“This is a natural evolution of the species. The Siemens Gamesa 5.X has already offered our customers one of the most powerful machines providing green energy in the onshore landscape, and we can now boost its capacity even higher. This will provide real benefits for our partners, and we will work closely with them to guarantee we continue to deliver sustainable energy to the world with this benchmark turbine,” said Siemens Gamesa’s CEO Jochen Eickholt.   

The first Siemens Gamesa 5.X turbine was installed in Sweden at the 231MW Skaftåsen project. Since that first project, customers have placed orders for the wind turbine in many other countries including Brazil, Finland, Germany, Romania, and Spain.
