The extension will help the project perform at optimal levels of efficiency and availability for years to come. Located on approximately 16,000 acres, the 161 megawatt (MW) Wildorado Wind Ranch has the capacity to meet the electricity demand of more than 50,000 households.
Under a new agreement, Siemens will continue providing service and maintenance on the 70 SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines operating at the Wildorado Wind Ranch, near Amarillo, Texas.
The service agreement with Edison Mission Energy adds to the existing five-year agreement a limited warranty and availability guarantee, in addition to specified service and maintenance for five years, marking a total of 10 years at the site for Siemens' wind service operations. Completed in 2007, the Wildorado Wind Ranch is the largest wind energy facility in the Texas Panhandle region.A leading provider of wind service globally, Siemens has created a flexible service product portfolio that allows wind turbine owners to choose the level of support to match their needs. The Siemens service program focuses on providing a tiered range of services to help customers achieve high availability throughout the lifecycle of the wind turbines and wind farms.

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.
Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...
MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...
Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...
Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
