Siemens to install 97 MW wind power capacity in Peru

Sponsored by

Cobra Energia has awarded Siemens Energy another order to expand its onshore wind power fleet in Peru by 97 MW.

The Tres Hermanas wind power plant includes a combination of 25 direct drive SWT-3.0-108 wind turbines and eight geared SWT-2.3-108 units. The contract also includes six years of service and maintenance. The project is expected to be commissioned in July 2015.

The new wind power plant is the second project that Spanish wind developer Cobra Energia is executing with Siemens in Peru. In September 2013, Cobra Energia purchased 11 Siemens wind turbines with a total capacity of 32.1 MWs for the Marcona wind project.

The Tres Hermanas project will be located near the city of San Juan de Marcona and adjacent to the Marcona wind project. Tres Hermanas was awarded as part of the second renewable energy tender by the Peruvian Government and contributes to Peru's energy goals to reduce its dependency on natural gas and decrease carbon dioxide emissions.
