More wind for Oklahoma

Siemens is to supply 44 wind turbines rated at 2.3MW for the Keenan wind farm in Woodward County, Oklahoma.

The order was placed by CPV Renewable Energy Company, a subsidiary of Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) and a power-generation development company focused on North America.

The farm will increase Oklahoma’s existing 700MW wind-power capacity by 101MW and is scheduled to be in commercial operation in 2009.

The scope of supply includes the delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines. A service and warranty agreement is also included in the order.

Siemens has so far received six US wind turbine orders totalling more than 1,500MW to date this fiscal year.
