Siemens bags orders for 3 wind projects in Scotland

By Editor


Siemens has bagged orders for 3 onshore wind projects in Scotland.

Siemens will set up 23 units of its D3 direct drive wind turbines, providing output of 69 MW for the Dersalloch wind farm in South Ayrshire. Siemens will start installation of the turbines in spring 2016 and handover the site to developers ScottishPower Renewables in autumn 2016.

Siemens will supply six SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines to the Ewe Hill Phase 1, located 15 kilometers from Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway.

The company will install 16 SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines for Phase 2, bringing both sites up to 22 wind turbines with a potential generating capacity of up to 51 MW. Siemens will start the installation of the turbines for Phase 1 in spring 2016, while installation of the Phase 2 will be in autumn 2016.

Siemens will deliver two SWT-3.2-101 turbines to North Ayrshire where already six 3.0 MW-rated wind turbines were installed for Millour Hill Community Wind Co.

“With their combined rating of 126 MW these three projects will provide reliable, clean energy for the region – equivalent to the demand of both Scotland’s Orkney and Shetland Islands,” said Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore of Siemens’ Wind Power and Renewables Division.
