Hamburg, Sep 28, 2016
Meeting the growing demand of wind turbines suited for moderate wind speeds, Siemens presents its new wind turbine model SWT-3.6-130 for IEC class II sites. Especially designed for medium wind sites and based on proven Direct Drive technology, the latest addition to the portfolio delivers 3.6 megawatts (MW) of electric power.
Siemens has launched an extended portfolio of its successful Onshore direct drive wind turbines. At the WindEnergy Hamburg trade show, the company's Onshore CEO Thomas Richterich launched three new turbine models for optimum performance at low wind, medium wind, and noise sensitive sites.
High performance at low to medium wind speeds – that's what the new Siemens low noise SWT-3.3-130LN wind turbine offers customers. The new model operates at a reduced rotor speed compared to the SWT-3.3-130, and includes aerodynamic add-ons to its rotor blades.

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.

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.

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.
