Cooperation between Siemens Gamesa and Max Bögl

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, one of the global leader of wind turbines, and the German hybrid tower manufacturer, Max Bögl Wind AG, have agreed on a sustainable cooperation model. The partnership framework agreement provides that project developers planning a Siemens Gamesa wind turbine will in future be able to purchase hybrid towers as partial services directly from Max Bögl in order to reduce the number of interfaces and plan even more economically. A first project in which the new contractual construct will come into play is the wind farm Coesfeld Letter Bruch GmbH, which is being developed by the SL NaturEnergie Group.


“In recent years, we have brought down the costs of wind energy significantly through technological innovations and efficient project management. The Coesfeld project shows how close cooperation between suppliers and project developers can lead to profitable wind farms even at challenging sites,” says Clark MacFarlane, Siemens Gamesa Onshore CEO for the NE&ME region.


13 modern wind turbines, nine of them equipped with a Hybrid Tower Bögl, will be built in this project in the western Münsterland region. This makes it one of the largest wind power projects in North Rhine-Westphalia – a positive signal for the entire wind energy industry. Together with citizens and an energy supplier from the region, the wind farm will be operated after completion in early 2021.


“In Coesfeld, from the outset we focused on cooperating with municipal utilities and landowners. This is complemented by citizen participation and a civic foundation that supports local social initiatives. It is important to us that as many people as possible who are involved in the energy transition and helping to protect future generations should also be able to share in the value created,” says Milan Nitzschke, managing director at SL NaturEnergie.


The wind turbines in Coesfeld will make an important contribution to making the city’s energy supply more climate-friendly. They produce around 125,000,000 kWh of clean electricity per year, covering the needs of almost 36,000 three-person households and saving more than 53,000 tonnes of climate-damaging CO2.
