Siemens Energy has been awarded 10-year wind service agreements encompassing over 400 onshore wind turbines in the USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. The customer is Pattern Energy Group based in San Francisco, California.
Siemens will provide the long-term service and maintenance, as well as technology updates, for six Pattern Energy wind projects with a combined output of over 930MW. The current operating projects included in the new service agreements are Pattern Energy’s St. Joseph Wind project in southern Manitoba with 60 SWT 2.3-101 wind turbines (138MW); Spring Valley Wind in eastern Nevada with 66 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines (152MW); Ocotillo Wind in Southern California with 112 SWT-2.3s108 units (265MW); Hatchet Ridge Wind in Northern California with 44 SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines (101MW); and Santa Isabel in Puerto Rico with 44 SWT-2.3-108 units (101MW). These projects are also slated to receive a variety of modernisation and upgrade components. In addition to the projects currently in operation, Siemens has also signed a 10-year service agreement for the Panhandle 2 wind project in Texas with 79 SWT-2.3-108 turbines (182MW), which Pattern Energy has agreed to acquire when the project reaches operation later this year.
