Siemens Energy has received an order from Spanish firm Cobra Energia to expand its onshore wind power fleet in Peru by 97MW.

The contract calls for the supply of a combination of 25 direct drive SWT-3.0-108 wind turbines and eight geared SWT-2.3-108 units for the Tres Hermanas wind power project.

Scope of the contract also includes six years of service and maintenance for the project that is expected to be commissioned in July 2015.

To be located near the city of San Juan de Marcona and adjacent to the Marcona wind project, the new wind power plant is the second project that Cobra Energia is executing with Siemens in Peru.

According to Siemens Energy, blades and geared nacelles for the wind project will be produced in the US.

In September 2013, Siemens had delivered 11 wind turbines totaling 32.1MW to Cobra Energia for the Marcona wind project.

Siemens Energy Wind Power Onshore Americas business CEO Mark Albenz said the second order from Cobra Energia allows both the firms to further expand their wind power activities in Peru.

"We are pleased to partner with Cobra Energia again to provide clean, renewable power to more than 90.000 households in Peru Albenze added.

"The project is also important for our U.S. factories in Iowa and Kansas, from which we’ll export all of the blades and geared nacelles for Tres Hermanas."
