Siemens to Supply 79 Turbines for Pattern Texas ProjectChristopher Martin
Siemens AG, Europe’s biggest engineering company, won a contract to supply 79 wind turbines for a 182-megawatt Pattern Energy Group Inc. power project in northern Texas.
Siemens will begin delivering the 2.3-megawatt turbines in March for the Panhandle 2 wind farm in Carson County and Pattern expects to complete it in November, the Munich-based company said today in a statement. The blades will be built at Siemens’s factory in Fort Madison, Iowa, and the nacelles, the car-sized units that house the turbines’ machinery, at a Hutchinson, Kansas, plant. Terms weren’t disclosed.
