In Peru, near the city of San Juan de Marcona, a new onshore wind power plant is expected to go online in March 2014.
Siemens has recently received an order from Spanish wind developer Cobra Energia for the supply, delivery and commissioning of a total of 11 wind turbines with a total capacity of 32.1MW. The wind power plant will consist of eight 3MW direct drive SWT-3.0-108 wind turbines and three 2.3MW geared SWT-2.3-108 units. All turbines have a rotor diameter of 108 meters each and are installed at a hub height of 80 meters. This order marks Siemens’ market entry with wind turbines in this country. All of the blades and three of the geared nacelles will be produced at Siemens’ U.S. plants. Additionally, the company will provide service and maintenance for seven years.
