Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has been chosen to repower two wind farms in Texas.
The unspecified projects, owned by NexEra Energy Resources, currently feature Siemens SWT-2.3-93 model turbines.
The repowering programme will upgrade them to the SWT-2.3-108 model. That’s expected to deliver up to 25% more annual power production, boost efficiency and extend their service life after the upgrades.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2017 but the wind farms will remain operational during the repowering process.
