Siemens wins extension to continue providing service and maintenance at the Wildorado Wind Ranch in Texas, USA

20.12.2012
With continued growth in its wind power service business, Siemens Energy has signed a contract extension with Edison Mission Energy to continue providing service and maintenance on the 70 SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines operating at the Wildorado Wind Ranch, near Amarillo, Texas.

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.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
