Siemens builds 100 MW wind farm in Ontario

With a capacity of 100 MW, the farm will supply sufficient electricity for around 30,000 households. The installation of the wind turbines is expected to begin in June 2011. This is the second wind contract that Siemens has secured from RES. In November 2009, the company ordered 43 turbines of the same type from Siemens.

"Over the last six months, Siemens has received wind turbine orders from Canada with a total capacity of 600 MW", reports Jan Kjaersgaard, General Manager of Siemens wind energy business in America.
