Siemens secures Dudgeon order

Siemens' SWT-6.0-154 will be tested at Hunterston, Scotland
Norwegian energy giant Statoil plans to build its down-scaled Dudgeon wind power project off the UK using 6MW Siemens turbines, under a £516m ($846m) deal that also includes operations and maintenance for the 400MW development.

The German OEM, which will deliver 67 of its 154m diameter rotor machines for the Round 2 wind farm, will kick off the contract this month with engineering and design work for the project’s foundations and electrical infrastructure.

A first batch of the SWT-6.0-154s, also in the frame for Dong’s giant Westermost Rough project, will be ready for load-out at the start of 2017.
