Siemens Energy has won a contract to supply turbines for a wind farm in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Under the contract, the company will supply 12 direct-drive wind turbines, 11 model SWT-3.0-113 and one model SWT-3.0-101 turbine, for the Süderlügum publicly-operated wind farm.

Located around 20km from the North Sea coast, the Süderlügum wind farm is scheduled to be installed for late 2014.

Siemens will also provide service and maintenance for a period of 20 years to ensure the long-term economical operation of the wind farm.

Each turbine has a capacity to generate 3MW.

This onshore order from the coastal region of Nordfriesland is the third project with Siemens to be implemented by Reinhard Christiansen.

"Süderlügum is an important project for the local population that will make a collective contribution to the energy turnaround."

Reinhard Christiansen said: "Süderlügum is an important project for the local population that will make a collective contribution to the energy turnaround. As with our other two wind farms, Süderlügum will also supply clean electricity that is funded entirely by the public."

Construction of the wind farm also represents a significant infrastructure project for the Nordfriesland region.

Siemens said that its Reactive Power at No Wind technology will help Suderlugum take advantage of renewable energy sources during calm weather.
