Gamesa is not unfamiliar with delayed projects incurring hefty added expense in Europe’s northernmost regions. Now, however, the wind turbine manufacturer is facing a challenge different than prior experiences, this time pertaining to wind project Kolskaya, installation of which is underway on Russia’s Kola peninsula.

Or, perhaps, it’s more correct to say was being installed. For even though 48 of the farm’s 57 wind turbines were, according to local authorities, set up as of late July – two months after scheduled commissioning – the location in Russia has apparently put the undertaking in hiatus, says developer PJSC Enel Russia in a comment to EnergyWatch, thereby confirming having filed a lawsuit against Siemens Gamesa for breach of contract.
