Siemens has been awarded two projects to supply 330MW of wind turbines which will produce enough energy to power over 100,000 average US households.
The renewable energy company will provide 95 of its G132-3.465 MW wind turbines for the two projects. The Midway Wind farm, located in San Patricio County, Texas will have 47 installed Siemens wind turbines and includes a ten year ‘full scope service and maintenance agreement’.
Once completed, Siemens’ presence in the state of Texas will have grown to more than 4GW of wind power across a total of 30 wind farms (and the fourth project they’ve partnered on with Apex).
President and CEO of Apex, Mark Goodwin said, ”We are pleased to once again work with Siemens Gamesa and to have found a strong new partner in Sammons Renewable Energy,” “We look forward to providing construction management and asset management services for Midway Wind. With the addition of this project, Apex’s asset management portfolio will encompass nearly 1,700 MW of clean energy.”
Onshore Americas CEO, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, José Antonio Miranda said, “We are pleased to have been selected for these orders here in the U.S. The G132-3.465 MW wind turbines are a perfectly suited to address the diversity of the wind conditions in the U.S. market.”
The Siemens G132-3.465 MW wind turbine is considered one of the most efficient and cost-effective solutions for sites with medium speed winds.
