Siemens nets wind turbine order for Texas wind power project

The project, which will consist of 79 Siemens SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines, is being developed by Pattern Energy Group LP

Siemens Energy secured an order for the 182 MW Panhandle 2 wind power project located in Carson County, Texas, northeast of Amarillo.

The project, which will consist of 79 Siemens SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines, is being developed by Pattern Energy Group LP and Pattern Energy Group Inc. has committed to acquire the project upon completion.

Component deliveries will start in March 2014 and commissioning of the wind turbines is scheduled for November 2014. The deal also includes a service and maintenance agreement designed to help ensure the ongoing reliability of the project.

The service agreement will help contribute to the long-term reliability, availability and performance of the turbines. It includes Siemens’ innovative remote monitoring and diagnostic solutions as well as advanced weather forecasting techniques to enable predictive maintenance at well-timed periods, which can positively contribute to the power output of the wind farm.

Wind power and energy service are part of Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio. Around 43 percent of its total revenue stems from green products and solutions. That makes Siemens one of the world’s leading providers of eco-friendly technology.
