Siemens has been awarded another order from Pattern Energy Group LP (Pattern Development) to supply and install 87 wind turbines for the Logan's Gap Wind project in the USA. The 200-MW project, located in Comanche County, Texas, will create enough clean energy to power 50,000 homes in Texas annually. The SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines to be supplied have a power rating of 2.3 megawatts (MW).
Installation of the wind turbines at the Logan's Gap project is scheduled to begin this year, with the start of operations expected for autumn 2015. A service and maintenance agreement was also signed to help ensure the turbines operate at optimal levels.
Logan's Gap, located near the Dallas-Fort Worth area, is the fourth wind project in Texas owned by Pattern Energy Group, Inc. (Pattern Energy). The energy provided by these turbines is part of more than 1,200 turbines which Siemens has already installed in this state. Logan's Gap represents the 12th project between Siemens and Pattern Development in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and South America. The nacelles for the project will be assembled at Siemens facility in Hutchinson, Kansas. The blades, with a length of 53 meters will be manufactured at the Siemens blade facility in Fort Madison, Iowa.
"We are proud that Siemens is partnering with Pattern Development on this project, continuing our success with wind power projects across the Americas," said Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division. "Pattern Development is an important and trusted customer with a proven ability to deliver clean, renewable energy, and we greatly value our continued partnership with them."
