Siemens to Supply 116 Wind Turbines for Green Power Plant

SiemensLogoSiemens Energy will manufacture 116 wind turbines that Portland General Electric intends to use for a power plant to supply about 84, 000 U.S. households with renewable electricity.

Components of the equipment to be installed at the 267-megawatt Tucannon River Wind Farm in Washington state will be fabricated at facilities in Iowa and Kansas, Siemens said Tuesday.

The company also has a five-year commitment to provide maintenance services for the facility, which is targeted to begin operations in 2015.

Siemens also supplied wind turbines to a 343-MW power plant adjacent to the Tucannon River Wind Farm.

Both facilities are part of the Lower Snake River renewable energy project.

Siemens Energy says it earned $36.8 billion in revenues from products and services offered in the electricity, oil and gas sectors for the 2012 fiscal year.
