Scottish wind farm signs turbine supply contract

Siemens will be supplying 68 wind turbines for the Griffin onshore wind power plant in Scotland which is due for completion in 2012.

Siemens Energy are suppling 68 wind turbines with a capacity of 2.3MW each for SSE Renewables (SSER). The Griffin wind power project is located about 30km north west of Perth in the Scottish Highlands.

The wind power plant will have a capacity of 156 MW upon its completion in 2012, and is expected to generate enough power to supply over 80,000 homes.

Siemens will be delivering, installing, and commissioning the 2.3MW turbines. Of the 68 turbines, 61 will have a 101m rotor and seven will have a 93m rotor. It is the first time that a SWT-2.3-101 turbine will be used in the UK. Siemens will also provide services for turbine operation and maintenance for an initial period of five years.

Last autumn Siemens and SSER signed a contract for the supply of wind turbines for SSER’s 350MW Clyde wind farm project in Scotland. This project is planned for commissioning in 2012.
