Siemens Energy has signed a contract with Nareva Holding to provide 100 MW of wind turbines for projects in Africa.
The agreement encompasses the delivery of 44 wind turbines for the Haouma and Foum El Oued Wind Power Plants in Morocco. The scope of supply includes the delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a five-year service contract for each project.
The Haouma Wind Farm will be built in northern Morocco, approximately 30 km east of Tangier and 6 km south of the Mediterranean coast. The 50 MW project will feature 22 Siemens SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines. The Foum El Oued project will be built in one of the windiest areas of Morocco in the municipality of Laayoune, 9 km southeast of the port of Laayoune in southern Morocco. Foum El Oued will also have a capacity of 50 MW, and will feature 22 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines.
Both wind projects are expected to commence commercial operation by summer 2013.
