Siemens to supply 126 megawatts to onshore wind power plants in Scotland

27.11.2015
  • 57 direct drive wind turbines for three wind farms
  • Long-term service contracts included
  • Clean energy for roughly 50,000 households

The Siemens SWT-3.2-101 and other models of the Siemens D3 product platform provide high energy yields and efficient operation for three Scottish onshore wind projects.

Siemens has been awarded orders for three onshore wind projects in Scotland, supplying up to 50,000 households in South and North Ayrshire and Lockerbie. The contracts also include long-term service and maintenance.

For the Dersalloch wind farm in the South Ayrshire region Siemens will construct, install and commission 23 units of its D3 direct drive wind turbines, providing a combined output of 69 MW (megawatts). The installation of the turbines is scheduled to begin in spring 2016 with the official handover of the site to developers ScottishPower Renewables in autumn 2016. Siemens will also be responsible for servicing the wind turbines.

In addition, Siemens will supply six SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines to the Ewe Hill Phase 1, located 15 kilometers from Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway. Furthermore, sixteen wind turbines of the same type will be installed for Phase 2, bringing both sites up to 22 wind turbines with a potential generating capacity of up to 51 MW. The installation of the turbines for Phase 1 is scheduled for spring 2016, followed by Phase 2 installation in autumn 2016.

For Millour Hill Community Wind Co Ltd, Siemens will deliver two SWT-3.2-101 turbines to North Ayrshire where already six 3.0 MW-rated wind turbines were installed. Three years ago the installed turbines marked a product premiere for the Siemens' D3-product platform in the British market. Within the scope of a 20 years services agreement, Siemens is taking charge of maintaining the two SWT-3.2-101.

"We are delighted to continue our partnership with ScottishPower Renewables and Community Windpower Limited," stated Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore of Siemens' Wind Power and Renewables Division. "With their combined rating of 126 MW these three projects will provide reliable, clean energy for the region – equivalent to the demand of both Scotland's Orkney and Shetland Islands."
