Hamburg, Sep 27, 2016
The growing scale of offshore wind turbines and projects requires higher efficiency in the grid connection between turbines and substation. In an effort to reduce costs and curtail demand for copper as the essential material of the inter-array wires, Siemens is going ahead with a new 66 kilovolt (kV) solution.
Siemens is developing economic storage technology: alongside Technical University Hamburg Harburg (TUHH) and urban utility company Hamburg Energie, Siemens is researching a storage solution in the Northern German city that will set a future standard in efficiency. After having been converted to heat in rock fill, excess wind energy is stored and protected with an insulated cover.
Silent operation of turbines is crucial for the success of many onshore wind projects. Siemens has therefore conducted extensive R&D over the last years to further reduce the noise of its wind turbines.
Hamburg, Sep 20, 2016
Four wind turbines and related equipment take a large step into the future of offshore wind technology: Nissum Bredning Vindmøllelaug and Jysk Energi placed the winning bid for Nissum Bredning Vind following a tender from Danish Energy Agency's (DEA) tender for the construction of the 28-megawatt pilot project in northern Denmark.
Hamburg, Sep 14, 2016
At the WindEnergy 2016 trade show Siemens will showcase various innovations designed to address the challenges of the energy transition: From wind energy generation under different conditions to grid access and storage. From September 27 to 30, the company will be presenting its latest developments at its 360-square- meter booth B6.362 in Hall 6 at the world's leading expo for wind energy in Hamburg. Siemens is appearing under the motto: "Smart solutions every step of the way". New products to be launched include a series of new onshore wind turbines and a new modular service concept for individual demands.
Hamburg, Aug 30, 2016
Siemens has received an order to supply, install and commission 64 onshore wind turbines for the onshore Grant Plains Wind project in Oklahoma. The customer is Apex Clean Energy. The wind power plant with a total capacity of 147 megawatts (MW) will generate enough power to supply more than 50,000 U.S. households with clean renewable energy. After commissioning later this year Siemens will additionally be responsible for servicing the wind farm.
Hamburg, Jul 26, 2016
Siemens has been awarded a contract to supply, install and commission 32 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3.2 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 113 meters, for the Hornsdale Stage 2 onshore wind farm in South Australia. Stage 2 is an addition to the Hornsdale Stage 1 wind farm project, for which Siemens has signed a contract in August 2015.
Hamburg, Jul 07, 2016
Siemens has contracted with Pattern Energy Group LP to deliver, install and service a total of 141 wind turbines for the Broadview Wind project. Broadview Wind combines two adjacent projects in New Mexico and Texas with a total installed capacity of 324 megawatts (MW). Both onshore wind power plants will provide clean energy to meet the energy needs of approximately 180,000 average U.S. households.
Hamburg, Jul 05, 2016
Siemens' direct drive wind turbine technology for offshore and onshore wind turbines reaches the next development milestone: The latest addition to the offshore direct drive platform, the SWT-8.0-154, represents yet another significant step towards grid parity for offshore wind. The 8-MW turbine is based on the existing offshore direct drive platform, incorporating only smaller evolutions.
Hamburg, Jul 04, 2016
Siemens has received an order to supply, install and commission 50 onshore wind turbines in Norway. Project developers are Zephyr AS and Norsk Vind Energi AS. Funds managed by BlackRock are providing equity financing for the project. The wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3.2 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 113 meters, will be erected in Rogaland south of Stavanger in Norway.
