Siemens receives St Joseph Manitoba wind turbine order

April 30, 2010  ByAnthony Capkun

Siemens Energy has received an order for the supply of 60 wind turbines for the St. Joseph wind farm in the province of Manitoba. The purchaser is Pattern Energy, and the wind farm will boast an installed capacity of 138MW.

For this project, Siemens will be responsible for supply, technical
field assistance for erection, and commissioning of the 60 wind
turbines—each rated at 2.3MW. 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 3400MW to more than
15,000MW 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.
