TOKYO, May 15, 2018

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, a global leader in the wind power industry, has signed its first agreement with Japan-based Tokyu Land Corporation for two projects in Hokkaido, and will supply 22 of its SWT-3.4-108.

Both nacelles and hubs will be manufactured in Denmark, while the blades will be produced in China and Denmark, said a statement.

The turbines will be delivered in 2018-19 and the first batch has arrived at the port in Hokkaido last April, it said.

Siemens Gamesa will also handle the operations and maintenance services at these facilities for the next 20 years, it added.

Álvaro Bilbao, chief executive officer, Siemens Gamesa’s APAC Onshore business, said: “We are strongly committed to the Japanese market.”

“We were pioneers in this market and we have established ourselves as the leading supplier thanks to our ability to adapt to our customers' needs,” he added.

The contracts were signed in August 2017 and March 2018 and are part of the Order Book announced in the results of Q2 FY2018.

Since entering the Japanese market in 1999, Siemens Gamesa has installed 188 wind turbines in the country (more than 323 MW). The company is also an active player in the operation and maintenance segment.

In addition to Japan, Siemens Gamesa's footprint in Asia Pacific extends to China, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand, where it has already installed more than 6.6 GW. – TradeArabia News Service
