Siemens opens wind power distribution facility in Kansas

Siemens (NYSE: SI) on Nov. 3 said it has opened a new wind power distribution facility in Wichita, Kan.

The 73,000-square-foot warehouse, with seven acres of outside storage, will provide procurement, kitting, storage, refurbishment and distribution for the tooling needed to erect and install wind turbines throughout the Americas region. The center will also provide storage, repair and distribution for all new unit transport framing and hardware used to move towers, nacelles and blades throughout the region.

The facility will provide support and distribution services for wind projects throughout the U.S., including 73 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines for the 163 MW Ironwood wind project owned by Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) in Kansas, scheduled to be commissioned late next summer.

Also in Kansas, Siemens is supplying 57 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines for Duke Energy's Cimarron II wind project in Gray County, scheduled for commissioning in May 2012.
