Siemens bags orders for onshore wind power projects in Scotland
Siemens has been awarded orders for three onshore wind projects in Scotland, supplying up to 50,000 households in South and North Ayrshire and Lockerbie. The contracts also include long-term service and maintenance. For the Dersalloch wind farm in the South Ayrshire region, the company will construct, install and commission 23 units of its D3 direct drive wind turbines, providing a combined output of 69 MW. The installation of the turbines is scheduled to begin in spring 2016 with the official handover of the site to developers ScottishPower Renewables in autumn 2016. Siemens will also be responsible for servicing the wind turbines.
