Siemens continues its strong track record of growing its wind power service business

New wind power service agreement signed in Canada

Orlando, Florida, USA, (PresseBox) - Siemens Canada Ltd. has been awarded a long-term wind power service contract for 48 SWT-2.3-93 and 40 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines at Kruger Energy's Port Alma and Chatham Kent wind energy plants in Ontario, Canada. The agreement is Siemens' first 10-year wind service contract extension in Canada and includes the company's blade modernization product, the Power Curve Upgrade, for the 44 SWT-2.3-93 units at Port Alma and the four SWT 2.3-93 units at Chatham Kent.

Under the agreement, Siemens will provide 10 years of service and maintenance along with an availability guarantee as an extension to the existing four-year service agreement for Port Alma and to the existing two-year service agreement for the Chatham Kent wind energy plant. Siemens will also install its Power Curve Upgrade on the SWT-2.3-93 turbines at both projects. At approximately 100 megawatts (MW) each, the Port Alma and Chatham Kent wind projects, located on the shores of Lake Erie, combined produce enough electricity to power approximately 60,000 Ontario households annually.

"As the original equipment supplier of the wind turbines for the Port Alma and Chatham Kent wind energy plants, Siemens has the experience and proven expertise to help Kruger Energy obtain favorable wind turbine performance throughout their lifecycle with flexible, reliable and cost effective solutions," said Tim Holt, CEO, Service Renewables, Energy Service Division, Siemens Energy. "We look forward to working with Kruger Energy as their service provider for these important renewable energy projects, which provide clean energy to homes in Canada."

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.
