Siemens Gamesa has signed a firm order with ScottishPower Renewables to supply 95 units of its SG 14-236 DD wind turbines to the East Anglia 3 wind power project in the North Sea, off England’s east coast, with a total capacity of 1.4 GW. Also included is a service contract, initially for an eight-year period. It's the first installation of this turbine type in the UK.

East Anglia 3 is the second of four projects planned in the ScottishPower Renewables 2.9 GW East Anglia Hub development. Once completed, it will be the second largest offshore wind power plant in the world, providing clean electricity to 1.3 million UK homes. Installation is anticipated to begin in spring 2026 and to be completed by the end of that year. 

Siemens Gamesa Offshore CEO Marc Becker says, “East Anglia 3 is critical to the successful achievement of the UK’s decarbonization of energy, and its path to energy independence. It also marks the first deployment of the groundbreaking SG 14-236 DD offshore wind turbine in UK waters. In these challenging times, it is encouraging to sign this firm order with ScottishPower Renewables as we jointly move to a more financially sustainable wind industry, but we need the UK government to fully recognize that renewable energy, especially wind generation, is now on the same level of importance as oil and gas and requires similar levels of support to ensure it delivers what the UK needs to reach crucial Net Zero targets.”

ScottishPower Renewables CEO, Charlie Jordan, says “Continued ambition and innovation in turbine technology by partners such as Siemens Gamesa has allowed ScottishPower to purchase market leading turbines at a scale that will generate enough green energy to supply 1.3 million UK homes."
