WASHINGTON -- August 20, 2013

Siemens Energy has received an order from the U.S. public utility Portland
General Electric for the supply and installation of 116 wind turbines. The
wind turbines, each with a rating of 2.3 megawatts (MW) and a rotor diameter
of 108 meters, are to be installed at the Tucannon River Wind Farm in the
state of Washington. When it comes online in 2015, the wind farm’s total
capacity of 267 MW will be sufficient to supply nearly 84,000 American
households with ecofriendly electricity. The nacelles for the wind turbines
will be manufactured at the Siemens plant in Hutchinson, Kansas. The rotor
blades will be fabricated at the Siemens production facility in Fort Madison,
Iowa. Siemens will also be responsible for service for the wind turbines over
a period of five years. The Tucannon River Wind Farm, formerly known as Lower
Snake River Phase II, is adjacent to the Lower Snake River Phase I project, a
343-MW wind power plant completed in 2012 and also featuring Siemens wind
turbines.
