Siemens receives wind turbine order from Canada

Siemens Energy has received an order for the supply of 60 wind turbines for the St. Joseph wind farm in the province of Manitoba. Purchaser is the utility Pattern Energy. With an installed capacity of 138 megawatts (MW), the wind farm will provide clean power for more than 40,000 Canadian households by the end of 2010.

For this project Siemens will be responsible for supply, technical field assistance for erection, and commissioning of the 60 wind turbines each rated at 2.3 MW. Siemens also signed a two-year service and maintenance agreement.

“The Canadian wind power market is very promising. We are expecting it to grow from today 3,400 MW to more than 15,000 MW in 2020,” said René Umlauft, CEO of the Renewable Energy Division of Siemens Energy. The company has already supplied wind turbines for the Wolfe Island and Port Alma wind farms and also received orders for the Chatham and Gosfield wind projects. The combined installed capacity of the four wind farms is approximately 440 MW. “We want to extend our wind power business footprint throughout Canada.”

Wind turbines are part of Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2009, revenue from the Portfolio totaled approximately EUR23 billion, making Siemens the world’s largest supplier of environmentally friendly technologies. In the same period, the company’s products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their CO2 emissions by 210 million tons. This amount equals the combined annual CO2 emissions of New York, Tokyo, London and Berlin.
