The separately managed business Siemens Wind Power is a leading supplier of reliable, environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient renewable energy solutions. Driving down the cost of wind power is our key target as we strive to make renewable energy fully competitive with conventional energy sources.
What we do
Providing highly reliable and cost-efficient wind turbines, Siemens Wind Power offers solutions to meet both business and environmental needs. With over 25,000 megawatts of wind power installed, our wind power solutions deliver clean, renewable energy from offshore and onshore installations around the world.
Our platform strategy for onshore and offshore wind power plants is fundamental to bringing down the costs of wind power. With innovations in blade design and generator technology, we boost efficiency. At the same time, systematic modularization allows us to streamline the entire manufacturing and installation process.
In offshore wind power, Siemens is the most experienced company within the industry. With the creation of the world’s first offshore wind power plant in 1991 in Denmark, Siemens established the industry. Recent years’ industrialization have seen Siemens set and break the records for the world’s largest offshore wind power plants, presently held by the 630 MW London Array project. It features 175 Siemens 3.6 megawatt wind turbines.
Siemens occupies a leading position within onshore wind power, having been awarded the world’s largest single onshore order to date: a 1,050 MW order from MidAmerican Energy in the USA for 448 onshore wind power plants in Iowa, received in December 2013. Upon completion, the wind farm will generate power for over 300,000 Iowan households.
In Amarillo, Texas, Siemens has completed construction of the federal government’s largest wind farm – which will generate annual savings of approximately $2.8 million.
Hydro and Ocean
With an expertise in hydropower for more than 100 years Siemens provides comprehensive solutions for its customers. We have a proven excellence in the implementation of turnkey projects for small hydropower plants built on integrated products, solutions and services across the entire Power Matrix. In 2008, the Siemens-owned company Marine Current Turbines (MCT) installed SeaGen, the world’s first commercial tidal current power plant. Siemens is one of the leading companies in the ocean power market.
