Siemens gets another wave of wind business

964567_windmill.jpgSiemens Energy is picking up a lot of business at the moment.

This contract is an order for another 2.3-megawatt (MW) wind-turbine project in the US.

They say…

Siemens will supply 65 wind turbines for the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm Phase 2 and 76 units for the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm Phase 3 in Sherman County in Oregon. The purchaser is Portland General Electric Company (PGE), a fully integrated utility that serves more than 804,000 customers in Oregon. The purchases will increase Oregon’s wind power capacity by nearly 325 MW, enough power to meet the electricity demand of approximately 100,000 households. Phase 2 is scheduled to be operational in late 2009, and Phase 3 is expected to be on line in late 2010.

“This is one of the largest single wind turbine orders we’ve received in the world’s largest wind energy market,” stated Andreas Nauen, head of Siemens’ wind business. “With nearly 1,000 MW installed or under contract in the Pacific Northwest, Siemens is pleased to have been chosen by PGE to help meet the growing demand for clean, wind-generated electricity.”

“Biglow Canyon Wind Farm is a major investment in renewable energy and resource diversity for PGE customers,” said Jim Lobdell, PGE’s vice president for power operations and resource strategy. “Siemens has the right product and the right know-how to help us ensure the project will be completed efficiently and perform as promised.”
