Siemens Gamesa installs 210 mts wind turbines

Siemens Gamesa has installed Asia’s tallest wind turbines, with a total height of 210 metres (230 yards), in Thailand.

The 33 turbines, with 153 metre-high towers and 56 metre blades, have been installed in the Sarahnlom wind farm in central Thailand, where commissioning is scheduled for later this year.

Wind farm operators are betting on a new generation of colossal turbines as they seek to remain profitable after European and other countries phase out subsidies that have defined the renewables industry since the 1990s.

The Sarahnlom wind project is owned by Thai engineering company Gunkul and being built by PowerChina ZhongNan. It has a total capacity of 67.5 MW.
