Siemens Energy has received an order for the supply of 60 wind turbines for the St. Joseph wind farm in the province of Manitoba. Purchaser is the utility Pattern Energy. With an installed capacity of 138 megawatts (MW), the wind farm will provide clean power for more than 40,000 Canadian households by the end of 2010.
For this project Siemens will be responsible for supply, technical field assistance for erection, and commissioning of the 60 wind turbines each rated at 2.3 MW. Siemens also signed a two-year service and maintenance agreement.
