Siemens Wind Power has secured two contracts for supplying 13 of its gearless turbines to Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein states in northern Germany.
As part of the deal, Siemens Wind Power will be responsible for installation and commissioning its six units of SWT-3.3-130 to WPD Windpark Damme, an electric utility company operating in Damme region.
Siemens will supply seven units of the type SWT-3.0-113, for the Karlum project in the northern part of Schleswig-Holstein.
The deal will also see Siemens provide maintenance services to WPD Windpark Damme for a period of 15 years and 20 years for the Karlum project.
Siemens has already worked with WPD Windpark Damme last year, where it commissioned its wind turbines for a project near the A1 motorway and was connected to the power grid in the same year.
With the addition of six new SWT-3.3-130 units, the operator intends to repower an older project in Borringhauser Moor.
The new turbines will be installed in the Saxony region later this year at a hub-height of 135m.
Also known as Bürgerwindpark Brebek, the site is located in the northern part of Schleswig-Holstein. As part of project expansion, the operator has ordered seven units of the type SWT-3.0-113, which will be installed in the Karlum municipality regeon.
Siemens will install the wind turbines later this year on steel towers and hub heights of 115m.
