Siemens Canada Ltd. says it has been awarded a long-term wind power service contract for 48 SWT-2.3-93 and 40 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines at Kruger Energy's Port Alma and Chatham Kent wind farms in Ontario.

Each of the projects, located on the shores of Lake Erie, has a capacity of approximately 100 MW.

Under the agreement, Siemens will provide 10 years of service and maintenance, along with an availability guarantee as an extension to the existing four-year service agreement for the Port Alma wind farm and to the existing two-year service agreement for the Chatham Kent wind farm. Siemens will also install its Power Curve Upgrade on the SWT-2.3-93 turbines at both projects.
