Siemens Energy has been awarded a follow-up order for 72 of its 2.3 MW wind turbines equipped with 101-meter rotors, for the Comber Wind Ltd. Partnership project in Essex County, Ontario.
The purchaser is Brookfield Renewable Power Inc., for which Siemens has already supplied wind turbines for the Gosfield project in Ontario. The 166 MW project is expected to be completed in September 2011.
The scope for the Comber wind energy project includes supply and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a service, maintenance and warranty agreement. Delivery of the wind turbines is scheduled to begin in May 2011. This project is the second order that Siemens has received for wind turbines from Brookfield Renewable Power.
