Siemens Canada awarded order for 150-MW Grand Renewable Wind Project in Ontario


Siemens Canada awarded order for 150-MW Grand Renewable Wind Project in Ontario

Blades to be produced at Siemens' Tillsonburg manufacturing facility

OAKVILLE, ON, Oct. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Siemens Canada has received an order from Samsung Renewable Energy, Inc. (Samsung) and Pattern Energy Group LP (Pattern Development) for the Grand Renewable Wind Project. Located in the County of Haldimand in southern Ontario, the Grand Renewable Energy Park will consist of 100 MW of solar power and 150 MW of wind power. Under the agreement, Siemens will supply, deliver and commission sixty-seven (67) SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines. The deal also includes a three-year service and maintenance agreement. 

All of the 49-metre wind turbine blades for the project will be manufactured at the Siemens facility in Tillsonburg, Ontario, where blade production is currently running near capacity with close to 275 employees. Towers and steel for the turbines will be sourced from CS Wind in Windsor and Essar in Sault Ste. Marie as part of the commitment to the green energy economy in the Province of Ontario. Deliveries to the project will begin in January 2014 and commercial operation at the Grand Renewable Energy Park is expected to begin by fall of next year. 

The Grand Renewable Wind Project is the second Samsung and Pattern Development project in Ontario under the Green Energy Investment Agreement for which Siemens Canada has been selected to supply and commission wind turbines. Earlier this year Siemens was awarded a 270-MW order for the South Kent Wind project in Chatham-Kent. Turbine blades for that project began shipping to the site in July 2013 with the start of operation expected for spring 2014.
