Siemens Energy has been awarded another major order for a wind farm in the U.S. with a capacity of nearly 325 megawatts (MW). Siemens will supply 141 units of its 2.3-megawatt turbines for the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm Phases 2 and 3 in Sherman County in Oregon. The purchaser is Portland General Electric Company (PGE), a fully integrated utility that serves more than 804,000 customers in Oregon. This is the second major wind order from the Pacific Northwest that Siemens has publicized within one week. On Monday, March 31, the German-based company announced an order for 130 wind turbines that would produce nearly 300 MW in Washington State. The combined value of the two orders totals more than USD1.1 billion.

The Biglow Canyon Wind Farm Phases 2 and 3 will produce enough power to meet the electricity demand of approximately 100,000 households. Phase 2 of the project is scheduled to be operational in late 2009, and Phase 3 is expected to be on line in late 2010. The Siemens scope of supply consists of delivery, installation and commissioning of the 141 SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines with a capacity of 2.3 MW each, including a five-year warranty and separate service and maintenance agreement.
