21475

Siemens Energy (NYSE: SI) has finalized its contract with Pattern Energy for the Ocotillo Wind power project in southern California.

The wind power plant is currently under construction and most of the project will be placed into commercial operation in 2012, with a portion going online in the first half of 2013. The scope of supply encompasses delivery, technical field assistance and commissioning of the 112 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines, including a two-year service and maintenance contract. The majority of the wind turbines for this project are manufactured in the U.S.

Additionally, the 115 MW El Arrayán wind power plant in Chile will utilize nacelles and hubs from the Hutchinson, Kan., facility and blades from the Fort Madison, Iowa, plant. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 20 and commissioning is expected in late 2013 or early 2014. It will use 50 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines, including a five-year service and maintenance contract.

Siemens completed commissioning of 44 of the SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines for the Santa Isabel wind project in Puerto Rico in October.
