Siemens concludes framework agreement with Enel Green Power for 260 wind turbines

Siemens has concluded a framework agreement with Enel Green Power for the supply of up to 260 wind turbines for various wind farms in Europe. The total capacity of the onshore turbines is 600 megawatts (MW), sufficient to supply more than 350,000 European households with clean wind power. The agreement with the subsidiary of the Italian utility Enel S.p.A. provides for delivery of the turbines between 2011 and 2014 and includes an option for delivery of a further 600 MW of wind turbines. Maintenance of the turbines is also part of the agreement.


“Siemens is already market leader for offshore wind power. Through this agreement with Enel Green Power we are closer to our goal of being one of the top three suppliers in the overall market for wind power by 2012,” said René Umlauft, CEO of the Renewable Energy Division in Siemens’ Energy Sector.


Under the supply agreement, Siemens will deliver different types of wind turbines, rated at either 2.3 or 3.6 MW, featuring rotor diameters between 82 and 107 meters. The turbines will be deployed at onshore wind power plants in Italy, France, the Iberian Peninsula, Greece Romania and Bulgaria. The scope of supply also includes the delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a service agreement.


Wind power is part of Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2009, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about EUR23 billion, making Siemens the world’s largest supplier of ecofriendly technologies. In the same period, the company’s products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their CO2 emissions by 210 million tons. This amount equals the combined annual CO2 emissions of New York, Tokyo, London and Berlin.
