Siemens has received an order from MidAmerican Energy for the supply of 448 wind turbines. With a total capacity of 1,050MW this represents the largest order to date for onshore wind turbines for Siemens.
The wind turbines, each with a nominal rating of 2.3 MW and a rotor diameter of 108 meters, are to be installed in five different projects in Iowa. Siemens will also be responsible for service and maintenance of the wind turbines. The nacelles and hubs for the wind turbines of this major order will be assembled at the Siemens plant in Hutchinson, Kansas, and the rotor blades will be produced by Siemens in Fort Madison, Iowa.
