Siemens Awarded Wind Turbine Contract For 324 MW In New Mexico & Texas

Siemens has been awarded a wind turbine contract to supply 324 MW to adjacent wind projects in New Mexico and Texas.

Siemens will provide 141 of its SWT-2.3-108 turbines to Pattern Energy Group, which is developing the 324 MW Broadview Wind project, combining two adjacent wind projects in New Mexico and Texas.

Construction is already underway, and Siemens expects to begin installing the turbines this month. Upon completion, which is expected for the last quarter of this year, Broadview Wind will generate enough clean electricity for approximately 180,000 US homes. Siemens will also provide long-term service and maintenance for the project, including remote monitoring and diagnostic services.

“Siemens is proud to provide a sustainable solution to Pattern Development to help advance efforts in the US to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore of the Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division. “With our broad portfolio and comprehensive expertise in wind power generation we will help to increase the share of wind power in the U.S. energy mix. With New Mexico’s proximity to important wind energy areas, the state is on the way to become an important driver for the wind industry in this region.”

The SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines have a rotor diameter of 108 meters, and a hub height of 80 meters. Siemens will install 105 turbines for a total of 241 MW in the New Mexico section of Broadview, and 36 wind turbines totaling 83 MW at the Texas section.
