Siemens Energy has secured an order for a total capacity of 36MW in Nordfriesland, Germany.
Siemens is to supply twelve direct-drive wind turbines, eleven model SWT-3.0-113 and one model SWT-3.0-101 turbine, for the Süderlügum publicly-operated wind farm. The installation of Süderlügum onshore wind power plant is scheduled for late 2014. The owner has contracted Siemens for service and maintenance for a period of 20 years. Süderlügum even takes advantage of renewable energy sources during calm weather. This is made possible by the "Reactive Power at No Wind" technology from Siemens. This option enables the wind turbines to stabilize the alternating current power grid when no wind is blowing, by producing reactive power and feeding this power into the grid.
