Siemens receives onshore wind orders in UK and Ireland

Siemens liefert sieben direkt angetriebene Windturbinen mit einem Rotordurchmesser von 101 Metern und einer Leistung von je drei Megawatt nach Haute Borne. Siemens will supply seven direct drive wind turbines with rotor diameters of 101 meters and a rating of 3 megawatts each to Haute Borne.

Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division has been awarded orders from three different customers to construct, install and commission 52 units of its D3 direct drive wind turbines at three projects in Ireland and Scotland.

The company’s announcement follows a warning from RenewableUK, the trade association representing the wind, wave and tidal energy industries that an uncertain future awaits onshore wind projects in the UK, due to changes to be introduced by the country’s new government.

Together the wind projects are expected to supply energy for nearly 100,000 households in Ireland and the UK. All the orders include long-term service contracts ranging from five years for Galway Phase 1, to 10 years for Raheenleagh and a 20-year service contract for Aikengall 2.

The 52 D3 product platform wind turbines will be installed with models SWT-3.0-101, SWT-3.2-108 and SWT-3.2-113 selected according to site specific wind conditions and requirements. All of these Siemens direct drive wind turbines feature a PMG generator for a high energy yield with high efficiency at low operational costs.
