Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has been selected by NextEra Energy Resources to repower two wind power farms in Texas. The newly repowered wind farms are expected to deliver up to 25% more annual energy production, boost reliability and efficiency, and extend service life.

The two wind farms currently feature Siemens SWT-2.3-93 model turbines. The repowering program will upgrade them to the SWT-2.3-108 model. Project completion is expected by year-end and the wind farms will remain operational during the repowering process.

Harnessing its expertise in both turbine technology and turbine operation and maintenance services, SGRE has developed a comprehensive and customizable repowering program. The program offers solutions in all phases of a repowering project including siting guidance, financing, planning, construction, service and operation. SGRE further offers a turbine overhaul option designed to upgrade the electrical and electronic components of wind turbines from other turbine suppliers, improving performance and increasing energy production.
