Siemens bags orders for 3 wind power plants in Italy

By Editor


Siemens today said has received orders for three wind power plants in Italy with a total capacity of 130 MW within 12 months.

The renewable energy development company will supply its direct-drive D3 wind turbines — SWT-3.0-113 and SWT-3.2-113 — to three these plants being set up at the Basilicata region of southern Italy by the end of 2016.

These wind power generating projects include the 60-MW Melfi project located near Melfi town and a 54-MW project near the community of Tricarico in Italy.

The Siemens direct-drive turbines achieved the best overall cost balance for both of the planned wind farms. Besides its high annual energy yields the SWT-3.0-113 wind turbine scored well with its noise emission options, which provide for reduced rotor speed during operation at night.

Siemens in a statement said it will start installation work at the Melfi and Tricarico sites in the first half of 2016. The 16-MW Cerreto project, with its 5 Siemens SWT-3.2-113 turbines near the community of Genzano di Lucania and in the Basilicata region is scheduled to go online in the next weeks.
