August 22 (SeeNews) - Spanish wind turbines manufacturer Siemens Gamesa said on Monday that it has signed an agreement with Danish company Eurowind Energy to supply wind turbines for a 48 MW project in Romania, the first firm order for a wind project in Romania since a government subsidy boom for the sector ended in 2014.
The agreement with Eurowind will see the supply of eight SG 6.6-170 turbines to the Pecineaga wind project at a site around 50 km from Constanta, Siemens Gamesa said in a press release.The installation is expected to be carried out in the second half of 2024.

The companies have also signed a 20-year service agreement covering the maintenance of the turbines over this period.
Romania witnessed a boom in its wind industry from 2010-2014 thanks to government subsidies for the sector, during which time close to 3GW of energy was installed. Despite scarce activity in the market in the following years the country has remained of interest for developers which now see opportunities for the sector to gain steam again working on a subsidy free basis, Siemens Gamesa said.
Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, formerly Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica and Grupo Auxiliar Metalúrgico, is a Spanish-German wind engineering company based in Spain. It manufactures wind turbines and provides onshore and offshore wind services.
Eurowind Energy is a leading Danish developer and operator of wind, solar and hybrid projects with more than 250 employees across 14 European countries and the US.
