Typhoon-proof turbines are usually only required within offshore wind. However, the tropical hurricanes rage not only at sea, after all, which now benefits Siemens Gamesa. The wind turbine manufacturer secures an order for 79 such units with a total capacity of 339.7 MW.

The turbines will be delivered to four projects in the Dohoku cluster being established by project developer Eurus Energy on Japan's northernmost island, Hokkaido. Siemens Gamesa will also provide technical assistance during establishment and commissioning of the four wind farms, which are expected to be in full swing by the second half of 2023.
