The company will supply 35 units of its SWT-3.0-101 direct drive wind turbine, each with a generating capacity of 3MW and a rotor diameter of 101 meters.

The scope of supply includes erection and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a three-year service and maintenance agreement.

Siemens is expected to begin delivery of the wind turbines in August 2012, and the wind energy project is scheduled to be commissioned by late 2012.

This order is the third contract award for Siemens direct drive wind turbines in the US.

The company earlier secured orders to supply the turbines for Minnesota Power’s Bison 1 wind farm in North Dakota and Oklahoma Gas & Electric’s Crossroads wind farm in Oklahoma, US.
