Siemens supplies gear to Ontario wind farm

German electronics manufacturer Siemens AG said Thursday its equipment is used in a wind power plant near Chatham, Ont.

The Port Alma Wind Power plant, which has 44 Siemens wind turbines, is owned by Kruger Energy Port Alma LP and has a capacity exceeding 100 megawatts.

Siemens made the turbine blades at its Wind Power facility in Aalborg, Denmark. The manufacturer said the nacelles and towers were sourced from Denmark and China. In addition to wind turbine supply, Siemens also provided tower installation and commissioning services, and will supply maintenance and service for the next two years.

The company said since 2003, Siemens has installed wind power systems with a combined capacity of more than 3,000 MW, which will save as much as eight million tons of CO(2) per year.
