90 Siemens wind turbines for Thailand
Siemens Energy has received orders for a total of 90 wind turbines with a total rated capacity of 200 MW. The turbines are for the two wind farms Korat I and Korat II in the province of Nakorn Rachasrima in northeastern Thailand. The customers, K.R.Two Company and First Korat Wind, are both subsidiaries of the Thai company Wind Energy Holding Co. Ltd. The orders include delivery, construction and inauguration of the type SWT-2.3-101 turbines. The rotor blades and nacelles will be manufactured in China. Construction of the two projects will begin in the spring, and the turbines are to go into operation at the end of 2012.
“The entry of Siemens on the Thai wind power market shows that our technologies are also much liked in Asia,“ says Kay Weber, CEO of the Wind Power Business Unit APAC of Siemens Energy: “We are confident that we will receive further orders from this region.”
Just recently, Siemens and Shanghai Electric also announced the setting up of two joint venture companies for the Chinese wind power market. Apart from China, these are to service the entire Asia-Pacific region.
