- Siemens Gamesa will provide wind turbines for RES’ 100-MW Hilda wind power project in Alberta
- This order includes 20 SG 5.0-145 turbines operating with a flexible rating up to 5.2 MW, providing clean energy for the equivalent of nearly 50,000 Alberta homes

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has signed an order with Renewable Energy Systems (RES) in Canada to supply the 100-MW Hilda wind project in Alberta. The deal strengthens the company’s global partnership with RES in North America while taking a step forward to help Alberta, and Canada as a whole, meet their 30% goal of renewable energy generation by 2030. Siemens Gamesa will supply 20 SG 5.0-145 turbines, providing clean affordable power for around 50,000 homes.

“In partnership with RES and through the Hilda wind power project, we are two global corporations truly working to generate positive impact within our local communities and this project is proof of that,” said Shannon Sturgil, CEO, Onshore North America, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. “RES continues to be a key partner in providing clean energy solutions, as well as a strong global citizen in the communities we serve, and we are proud to expand our partnership with them into Canada.”

The 71-meter blade on the SG 4.X platform integrates aerodynamics and noise reduction features—including Siemens Gamesa DinoTails® Next Generation technology—to guarantee a high production of energy and reduced noise emission levels. This reduction in noise will improve the performance at the Hilda wind power project while remaining within the mandated noise emission levels. Siemens Gamesa currently has orders for more than 1.2 GW of power in western Canada with the SG 4.X platform for installation through 2023.

“We are pleased to announce Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy as the turbine supplier for our 100-MW Hilda wind project in Alberta,” said Peter Clibbon, RES Senior VP of Development. “Siemens Gamesa is a global leader in wind technology, and we look forward to delivering clean, renewable energy and helping Alberta meet its 30% renewable energy goal by 2030.”

With wind turbine installations of almost 3,000 MW installed across Canada from Alberta to Quebec, and with signed contracts that will increase to more than 4,000 MW by the end of 2023, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is a market leader by cumulative installed capacity.
