Siemens Wins Five Wind Turbine Orders for Germany

By Editors of Power Engineering

Siemens announced the company received five orders for 23 direct-drive wind turbines in Germany.

Two of the orders are for wind facilities in Schleswig-Holstein, with the other three in Lower Saxony.

All of the five developments are set for completion by spring 2017, with some to be done before the end of this year.

The turbine models to be deployed will be SWT-3.3-130, SWT-3.0-113 and SWT-3.2-113, placed on towers of varying heights based on wind conditions.

"Our exceedingly economical gearless wind turbines are bestsellers in windy northern Germany, as these five new projects in Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein underscore once again," said Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore of Siemens' Wind Power and Renewables Division. "With the larger rotor diameters in our newly expanded wind turbine portfolio, we are set to continue the success story of our highly efficient technology at onshore sites as well."
