SG 4.5-145

Onshore wind turbine

New turbine with the best-in-class LCoE >4 MW
The SG 4.5-145 is the first proposal of our 4.X platform. An exemplar of a new generation of onshore wind turbines, it offers nominal powers greater than 4 MW with an excellent LCoE. Its Type Certificate is expected in early 2019.

Powering a next-generation onshore product platform
AEP increase SG 4.5-145 vs. SG 3.4-132 (preliminary)
Exemplar of a new generation of turbines, it is informed by over 35 years’ experience in the wind power market and features proven technological solutions. This turbine complements the product offer in markets that require nominal powers greater than 4 MW, and with an excellent Cost of Energy. Optimized for medium-wind speeds, it is both modular and flexible to adapt to a wide range of sites.
Technological highlights
Our onshore approach is focused on geared technology, in which we have extensive knowledge and expertise. The hallmarks of Siemens Gamesa turbines are: reliability, robustness and a modular, flexible design for optimum adaptation and maximization of production at any site and in all wind conditions.
This turbine is equipped with blades made of fiberglass reinforced with epoxy or polyester resin. Together with the state-of-the-art aerodynamic profile, we can produce lighter blades having greater strength and improved dynamic behavior with less load transmitted to the rest of the components.
Turbine sensors continuously transmit data to our diagnostic centers, enabling the early detection of anomalies and preventing potential failures. By analyzing vibration patterns we can optimize your service plan and anticipate repairs before serious damage occurs.
OptimaFlex represents an entirely fresh approach to wind power. Turbines can be precisely configured to turn deep insights about your business and site conditions into a lower cost of energy, this means wind power solutions that are right for you on day one and every day thereafter.
